British Motorcyclists Federation (BMF) Blue Riband Rider award


In 9 out of 10 accidents, the main cause is human error - whether deliberate or accidental. During the advanced course we will help you to improve your observation, planning and control, all helping to reduce errors, reducing the likelihood of you causing your own accidents and helping you avoid other peoples.

The aim of the course is to assist experienced motorcyclists to improve their riding skills and therefore increase the enjoyment they get out of motorcycling. The course seeks to encourage you to THINK about why?, and what? you are doing when you are riding, to be self critical and to be able to recognise your own strengths and weaknesses.

The main objective throughout the course is that safety MUST be paramount at all times, without losing the enjoyment.
