Advanced Motorcycle Course Change of Start Date. 20th/21st April

The Next 1st Class Four Day Advanced Course is due to run in April but due to having to change the venue I’ve had to change the start date.  The original date was due to be the 6th & 7th of April but the new start date is 20th & 21st of April.

This is a four days spread over a number of weeks and consists of group theory sessions and then periods of road riding on a 1:2 basis.  All our instructors are Police Class 1 riders or hold the RoSPA Diploma.

Candidates on the course will get the opportunity to take the RoSPA Advanced Motorcycle Test at the end of the course.  Currently we have a 100% pass rate for those candidates choosing to take the test, several achieving the RoSPA Gold Standard.  This is widely recognised as the highest standard available to members of the public.

All the training is based on Roadcraft – The Police System of Motorcycle course.    The cost of this course is just £550 (this is around the daily rate that you might pay for a CBT!)  For those candidates wishing to take the RoSPA test an additional joint test & membership fee is payable to RoSPA

The on road sessions take place throughout South & Mid Wales on some of the most challenging mountain roads and you can expect to cover around 150 – 200 miles per day.

These courses are always popular and spaces fill up fast, so if you want to get your name on the list please contact me and you joining instructions and course details will be sent out.

Thinking you are good is one thing…… but knowing you are good is even better!  Get your name on the list.
