Hey, what's the least painful MVA location to visit, in order to transfer an out-of-state car license to an MD one?

If you say Baltimore City I'll punch you in the taint!

I've always had good luck at the annapolis one. Mid-day it's normally in and out maybe a 10 min wait.

Thoughts on Total Control class

So RFlagg42 took the total Control class recently and sent me his thoughts.....I thought I would share....with his permission of course.
http://www.totalcontroltraining.net/index.html
Courses in the area starting in March!

In a way I was disappointed at first, because I assumed I would leave being much more competent at certain skills. In reality, the theories they are teaching you are a bit overwhelming for a one day course, and the day's training is really just a starting point that I will have to make a point of practicing for a long while before I can think about taking the Level 2 course. In fact, the lead instructor told us from the first moment, that his top goal was for us to gain the knowledge to teach ourselves in the future, and in hindsight I see what he is talking about. I am going to go through and read the book (which I've had for about 2 years, but never really read) now and see if it makes more sense now.

The two key skills are (1) throttle and brake control, with the ultimate goal of not upsetting the suspension during a turn or any other situation that requires high performance (ultimately based on Moto GP data, they just touch on this during Level 1 and I think this is more of the focus during the Level 2 course), and (2) effective body position during a turn that results in minimal lean angle.

The goods, my teacher to student ration was 3:1 (because we had a instructor trainee, who had been a podium finisher in two Iron Butt Rallies, so I was glad to be able to meet him), but is normally a maximum of 6:1. The body positioning was taught really well. It exposed some oversimplification and some errors in what the Military Sport Bike course (now the MSF Advanced Rider Course) taught. The other students in my class were very inexperienced riders and it had one person dragging his knee by the end of the day.

I did better than most people in the course because I was already good at looking through the turn, which is tough for most novice riders.

The bottom line: It is a good course, taught based on sound, proven principles. I could even see myself taking Level 1 again before taking Level 2. If one is not willing to take the things they learn and practice, essentially making their riding a form of life-long learning, then it would probably be a waste of time.

For you and Dana, I recommend you take the course, and then follow it up with the Quantico training day which would be a great practice situation for the skills you learn in Total Control. I'm pretty sure they occasionally teach the course in Fredericksburg.

The problem the first time is that the address label fell off. The seller wrote directly on the box this time around.
