Advanced Rider Course

OVERVIEW

Our motorcycling course is tailored to the needs of each individual, and you can request a bespoke course at any time. However, we run an annual course from April until winter weather precludes safe riding. After enrolment, you will be allocated to one of our Observers, who will arrange your on-road riding sessions at mutually convenient times, using your own motorcycle. All Observers are volunteers who give up their free time to mentor you during the course.

 

For those who prefer to cover the theory, new members can attend our four classroom ‘Modules’ in Elgin Library on Tuesday evenings every week from 18:45 – 20:00. These officially start in the last week of March (Easter permitting). New members find these sessions complement the scope of the Advanced Riding Course log book which is sent to you after enrolment.

 

The course costs £175 and covers your first year’s IAM Road Smart and Group membership; course log book, highway code, tuition and test fee. There’s no time limit on this course and you’ll be assessed continuously until you reach the standard required to take the test which should be after 8 -10 Observed runs. However, your availability and that of your Observer, illness, holidays, weather and vehicle unserviceability, could extend it beyond 10 weeks.  Whatever your situation, we will continue coaching you until you’re test ready.

If YOU’RE UNDER 26, there’s £30 Cash Back on successful completion of the course.
