I am an MSF Instructor - Depending on your state, As in California I recommend you take either of the courses and then you will not have to take the riding test portion of the licensing exam. *ALSO, some insurance companies give a significant insurance discount for riders with an MSF certification. More accidents than not are with untrained, unlicensed riders.
As far as taking it on your LT, in California I have heard of folks passing with doing nothing more than riding down and back in the parking lot while going thru the gears and stopping at the examiners signal as the entire test. Depends on your examiner and the county you are in..
