If you passed your test a few years ago and haven't been riding for a while, then our rusty rider course may be just what you need. We are keen to understand what you are looking to achieve and will tailor each course appropriately. During the day we will start of with the basic skills that all riders need and then progress at your pace to cover techniques which will enhance your riding pleasure.
We will take the opportunity to find out about your riding skills and previous experience, while giving you the chance to tell us the kind of things you want to focus on.
Safety First - We start the day with a short ride to make sure you are comfortable with the bike and allow our instructor to plan a suitable route. Basic road safety is always vital when re-learning to ride, so our minimum aim is to make your riding safe. We'll concentrate on machine control and general road sense, before looking to enhance your riding ability.
Improving your skills - The key to improving your riding skills is in the ability to plan ahead. We'll look at the steps required to plan overtakes, corners and general hazard avoidance. This will cover everything from positioning, to use of gears, brakes and counter steering
