Training should not end when you get your license.
You can and should constantly strive to become a better and safer rider. For those who wish to improve their riding abilities Alert Motorcycle School offers the very popular and successful Advanced Roadcraft Day.
Hello David, Just a note to say thank you for the ARD. It was a great day, the instruction was spot on, very clear and practical, the balance between theory and practice just right and the general feeling was very cheerful.
The full day course starts at 7.30am in Bayswater with coffee and tea and a brief theory session.
We then run a series practical exercises to enhance cornering and braking techniques.
The rest of the day is spent honing riding skills on an open road course consisting of metropolitan and country roads. There are plenty breaks for individual feedback and practical riding demonstrations.
We stop for lunch in Toodyay.
The course is normally conducted with a ratio of one trainer to four trainees.
Every participant is given individual feedback and tuition throughout the day as well as having the opportunity to learn from the others in the group in a relaxed, friendly and supportive atmosphere.
