Refresher Training

You may have passed your test some years ago. In some cases, more years than we care to remember. As we have "aged", bikes have got more powerful and jumping straight back onto a big bike after a long break is not the safest thing to do. Bikes of the 50's, 60's, 70's and even 80's have been improved upon to the extent that now most 600cc machines have twin disc brakes on the front wheel and a disc brake on the rear wheel. 70 - 100 bhp is the norm for many middleweight road bikes and 180bhp+ is not unheard of. The now legendary RD350LC only produced 42 bhp! 

So, what can we offer the "born again biker"? In a nutshell, we offer safety. We will start off at your pace and a size of bike to suit you. Once you have familiarised yourself once again with "biking", we will progress to a point where you feel confident to ride your own bike - but safely.

There are a number of options available with post-test training, or "back to biking" :

Option 1

Gain more confidence with your bike, the roads and other road users. This is the simplest option and an example of this is the DSA's "Enhanced Rider Scheme"

Option 2

As above, but develop more "Advanced" techniques. This option does not lead to a qualification but gives you greater confidence and helps you to develop your riding.

Option 3

As option 2 but leading to an external qualification with the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) or Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA)
