Sign up for 9/23 and then call the Harley dealers to find out when their classes are and the costs.

Sign up then show up to each class about 10-15 min early, let the instructors know that you're there and registered and have the money to pay for it with you and if someone doesn't show usually 15 minutes after the start time.. you get to stay! That's how I got my license early, I was signed up for August or something but I got in a class in June.

+1 Good call, Unas, I forgot that was an option. Definitely something you should try repeatedly until you're successful

i agree with unas. call the administrator and ask to be placed on a cancellation list. there are always a few people that cancel.

yeah, i called them and they said they take walk-ins through a lottery, only prob with that is i bartend and work weekends only and don't want to risk missing work for nothing. But i'll just take the risk and hope i get in.

You would probably be succesful on the first attempt. There is always a percentage of people that don't show. That usually applies to any event.

thats what i have to do, im only sixteen, so the class is free. but i have to show up to a class the 23rd (thursday) early and hope that someone doesnt show. and on top of that they have to take me if somone doesnt show because its mandatory that i get in the class...so im crossing my fingers. because i will have to do this for all 15 + classes scheduled at the local community college because they are ALL booked. i guess motorcycling is pretty popular in ohio

Hey, mate, big props for making such a mature decision (to take the MSF course) at a young age!
