Rather than offering 'courses' I will listen to what you want to achieve and tailor your advanced rider training accordingly.

All advanced rider training is based on 'Roadcraft', The Police Riders Handbook. 

Roadcraft represents the highest standard in advanced rider training and is used by all Police Forces and other emergency services. It provides a recognised approach to riding which puts you in the right place on the road, at the right time, at the correct speed and in the right gear, to deal with all hazards. It is systematic, simple and applicable in all circumstances and will make you a safer, smoother and more confident rider. 

Who is the training aimed at ?

Anyone who holds a full UK motorcycle licence and has a bike capable of reaching and maintaining the national speed limit as all training will be conducted within the posted limits.

You may want to take your RoSPA or IAM test but want to have an 'intense' course rather than go through a group at 1 lesson a week/fortnight or are due a retest and want a pre-test assessment.

You may be new to motorcycling or coming back after a period away from them and want some refresher training. You may be about to start taking a loved one as a pillion passenger and want to reassure them that you are the best rider you can be, for their safety as well as your own.  Maybe you lack a little confidence in a certain area or you may have held your licence for years and years, owned numerous bikes but feel you'd like to have a riding 'health check' for no other reason than 'because you can'. It really doesn't matter and I am happy to discuss all requirements and needs.

How will the training be structured?

When you book with me, we will have a chat about your riding history, what you are looking to achieve from the training and I will answer any questions you have.

A normal training session will start with a pre-ride briefing to give you an outline of the day ahead. Once out on the road, I will assess your riding, identifying areas for development which we will discuss at various stages throughout the day. The session(s) will be relaxed and you will not be pushed beyond your capabilities. 

Where will my advanced rider training take place?

I am based in York, meaning I am perfectly placed to cover large areas of the Yorkshire region, which has some of the finest roads in the country. However, I am happy to discuss other locations should the need arise. Alternatively, why not come and have a few days over in 'my neck of the woods', stay over in any of the numerous hotels and B&Bs and ride some of these great roads.
