Advanced Rider

IAM RoadSmart Solent is an official provider of the IAM RoadSmart Advanced Rider Course.

What is it about?

The aim of the course is to improve your motorcycling skills to become a (much) better than average motorcyclist, allowing you to have a safer, smoother ride through learning about systematic riding and keeping that important element of a fun ride whilst still being legal.

As an Associate, our group offer you one-to-one observed rides with a dedicated Observer giving you continuity through your training. The course is ridden on your own motorcycle, and you will already have your A (or A2) licence, and the bike is capable of being ridden at national speed limits.

You’ll gain confidence, acquire new skills, make new friends, and even possibly get cheaper insurance. Whether you’re a new rider, born-again returning to riding on a more powerful bike, or you just want to be the best at what you do, this course is for you!

The course can take anything from a few months, with the average being about six months – but that depends on how much you put into learning, and treating every ride as a training ride. It will take some commitment to achieve the skills, and read up on the theory, but when you do, you will be one of the most skilled riders on the road, and will be part of the One Percent of riders who hold an advanced qualification.
