Taking your riding to the next level

This is not an advanced training course but a way of taking your riding to the next level. The course is heavily subsidised and will only cost £50.00 for a full day’s motorcycle training. Basic advanced skills will be taught with an emphasis on cornering as well as counter steering, braking techniques and overtaking. Many more disciplines will be covered during the day but the course programme will be developed around your personal needs and requirements.

There will only be two trainees per instructor at the most, so the training will be delivered on a personal level. Why not train with a friend as you can both arrive together with the knowledge of what you would like to cover during the day? You can always email us the areas you wish to improve upon before you attend. The instructor can then put together a training plan before your arrival.

What Our Customers Say

Please do tell Laura that the Take Control Course I attended recently, stood me in great stead on my latest trip to Brittany and Normandy from which I returned yesterday.

As a result of the training, I felt much more confident riding in France and I remembered to use my rear brake approaching islands and traffic lights. I’m not so sure about keeping within the speed limit always, whilst enjoying the twisty roads in France! Thanks for a valuable day.
