Course Overview

If you ride a motorcycle you already appreciate the sense of freedom it gives you, the mental discipline it takes, the buddies you make, and the thrill of being on one of the coolest machines on the planet.

But if you love riding, you also know its risks. It’s one reason why IAM RoadSmart developed our Advanced Rider Course, an on-road advanced motorcycling course delivered by trained volunteers that gives you greater confidence and a feeling of safety when you ride on Britain’s roads. We are also very proud that our course is Quality Assured by the DVSA.

Whether you’re a born-again biker returning to riding on a larger, more powerful machine or love riding and want to be the best rider you can be, this course is for you. There’s a good chance you’ll save on insurance too.
