Everyone thinks they're a good rider… right?

Advanced riders are 25% less likely to be involved in an accident

For some people riding is a stressful chore, while for others it can be a relaxing opportunity to assert themselves. Whichever category you fit into, surveys indicate that 80% of us think that we are above average riders and that accidents only happen to others. But, we probably all know, or have heard about, someone whose life has been changed as a result of a road accident.

RoSPA Advanced Drivers and Riders aim is to reduce road accidents by encouraging an interest in road safety, by improving riding standards, knowledge and skill. In order to do this RoSPA Advanced Drivers and Riders have over 50 local groups that will provide free training to help you improve your riding skills and help you train to become an advanced rider.

We can all benefit from taking the advanced test. Not only will you receive cheaper insurance discounts you will protect yourself and your loved ones. Riding a bike may be one of the most dangerous things that you will have to do in any one day, let's tackle this together and increase our safety on today's roads.

You have to be a member of a local group to receive tutoring for the test and our membership fee is currently £35 for 3 years. This is the initial cost to start training. When you are ready to take the Advanced test there is an additional fee payable directly to RoSPA/RoADAR parent group which includes the first year's membership to the parent group. Provided annual membership is maintained with the parent group, after the first year, there is no additional charge for the 3 year retest.

If you are interested in becoming an Advanced Rider, or are already one, and want to train with our group, please download the membership application form, via the Membership Form link on the “Contact Us & Links & Docs” page, complete and return via email.
