It might be quicker for you to just take another MSF class locally.

When I was on base, they used to offer a special all day class in order to be able to ride on the base. Maybe that is not how it is done anymore.

Don't waste any more time thinking that you will be able to get a copy of your old one. Start looking for a class down there -----> up here, there are a couple of times a year that there is a special class (just for military). There most likely is a one day class down there. The class is probably right on base --- don't forget your vest!

You will NOT be able to get a copy of your card from 6/7 years ago.

Having the endorsement on your license isnt enough?
Nope...having an endorsement doesn't mean you have had any training...remember...the course isn't a requirement to get your endorsement. All you HAVE to do is pass the written and road test to get the endorsement. All military installations require that you take a course to ride on base...my Dad used to teach it in NJ at Lakehurst Naval Base and I used to know the guy who ran it for McGuire AFB in NJ too. The safety Nazi's on base also require that you wear a bright colored vest while on post so people can see you better.... It sucks but....

I did notice that Power Trip or someone now makes a jacket that has zip out flaps that act like a vest....unfortunately it's in an Army jacket so if you are in another branch...you're screwed right now.

hey guys, thanks for your help. I was able to ride for an hour borrowing a friend's bike. when I come back here for Air Assault school, i'll be ready to rock and roll!

thanks again for everybody's help and speedy responses.

-Bill

edit: JR has a line of Army bike jackets, but they're not the most flattering looking. Icon makes a pretty cool Mil-Spec vest that I was looking at. It's not a big deal to ride with your PT vest here on post.

Best wishes,

-Bill

Rule #1 for AA school is forget everything you have ever been told, learned or even thought about rigging and sling loading. It is their way or the highway! :D

Actually, if you gave a copy of your card to your previous insurance company they should still have it on file. You could just ask them to see if you could get a copy.

That worked for me but it was only 1 year not 5+.

Your card isn't going to help you ---- to ride on any base.

You need to have a different type of card.

PM me with the date and location of your class, and I will see if the other type of card can be issued.



lata,
Scott
