Skill for Life
A passion for riding is a wonderful thing. Whether you’ve always had it, you’ve rediscovered it or you’re new to it, that passion is something to be embraced.
Advanced Riding is about taking that next step. Whether it’s about challenging your own standards or reassuring a loved one who struggles to share your enthusiasm, our Skill for Life programme can make you a better rider.
The programme teaches five phases of advanced driving; information, position, speed, gear and acceleration, so regardless of whether you’re navigating country lanes, busy roads, or tackling the challenging British weather, you have the skills and knowledge to remain confident and in control. Safety is part of the advanced riding programme, but it also encourages you to feel confident on the road, to make good progress, and to get even greater enjoyment from the experience.
The statistics speak for themselves. Participants of a recent study say:
Find riding more enjoyable 97% Avoided a specific accident or incident 61% Reported improved use of road space 94% Experienced the benefits of advanced riding 99%
