Take the Sharp Rider course to improve your skills
The Sharp Rider course runs for a minimum of 10 hours over two days and aims to make you a safer rider. The course covers the Driving Standards Agency and Enhanced Rider Training Scheme syllabus. Partially funded by The Road Safety Partnership, the course costs just £20* per person, which is nothing when you consider it could lower your insurance costs over time.
The weekend dates currently available are: 25-26 April, 23-24 May, 27-28 June, 25-26 July, 22-23 August and 26-27 September.
The course can be tailored to your needs, but basically provides an introduction to advanced riding techniques, covering cornering, overtaking, braking and many other essential skills to become a safer rider.
(*Discounted for riders living/working in Leicestershire and Rutland, full cost £90. Weekend courses are based at The Leicestershire Fire and Rescue HQ, Birstall, LE4 3BU).
