Phoenix Motorcycle Training York, working with Ian Speight Advanced Training, covers all areas around Yorkshire and Humberside
Almost all advanced rider training is based on ‘Motorcycle Roadcraft’, The Police Riders Handbook.
Roadcraft represents the highest standard in advanced rider training and is used by all Police Forces and other emergency services. It provides a recognised approach to riding which puts you in the right place on the road, at the right time, at the correct speed and in the right gear, to deal with all hazards, and used correctly will make you a smoother, more confident and safer rider.
How will the training be structured?
There are two routes you can choose to go down for your training.
1 – Bespoke Training – just for you.
From experience I know that some riders either don’t need to, don’t want to or don’t have the time to go down the structured, set syllabus ‘group’ route, with the aim of passing a test or obtaining a certified qualification. In fact, many of my customers want their training to be tailored to a certain aspect of their own riding and this is where bespoke training is perfect. There is no set syllabus or set number of hours or days and no test to pass at the end, it is purely tailored to suit your individual needs. This means I can concentrate on giving you the skills that are relevant to your riding.
So, whether you’ve lost a little bit of confidence with cornering, overtaking, riding in the wet, or just want an honest overall assessment of your riding generally, then bespoke training is perfect for you. Of course, if you later decide that you do want to take a test, that can easily be achieved. Read on…..
2 – Certified qualification.
