We have delivered excellent service to motorcyclists and trainers since the early 80's.

We help at-risk motorcyclists be safe on our roads

We all have something to learn
Everyday, we learn; even after decades of training thousands of motorcyclists! It's one of the keys that make our team great trainers and safe riders. You benefit from our having "been there - done that" as we share our internalised approach to roadcraftInformation roadcraft (IPSGA): A 5-point system of control originated at the Metropolitan Police Driving School at Hendon, UK, to safely navigate a hazard:
I Information received, used, communicated,
P Position that is safe, visible and correct,
S Speed such as to stop within visible range,
G Gearing to maximises vehicle control and
A Accelerate to safely clear the hazard.

Taking, using and giving information permeates the System and is applied as needed. The system is applied on approach to hazards (where a change in speed or direction is required).

This step-by-step approach minimises multi-tasking and maximises concentration and awareness at the point most needed: on the final approach to a hazard.

These books also underpin teaching at RoSPA and the Institute of Advanced Motorists.
through accepting responsibilityInformation You're the one who looks after you! It's not a 'blame game'. Regardless of 'right' or fault, you're the one who's going to wear it when things go sideways. Do you want that?

Of course you don't!
       we're here to help.
and realising culpabilityInformationAccepting blame for a breach of care: Definition from The Free Dictionary:
Blameworthy; involving the commission of a fault or the breach of a duty imposed by law.

Culpability generally implies that an act performed is wrong but does not involve any evil intent by the wrongdoer.

The connotation ... is fault rather than malice or a guilty purpose ... reprehensible rather than wantonly or grossly negligent behaviour.

          Culpable conduct may be wrong
          but it is not necessarily criminal

Culpable ignorance is the lack of knowledge or understanding that results from the omission of ordinary care to acquire such knowledge or understanding.

Risk managing your riding
Road RageCritical ErrorRoad Rage Road Rage is now at alarming levels. No longer is it a shaken fist or a few curses - it's people lives at stake kills, and riders There's a wide range of 'motor-cyclists' out there: Electrically powered cycles, scooters, motorcycles and trikes, and just a wide range of people riding them, from the new road user through to mature riders returning to riding after a significant break (including cyclists) are at riskHelpHazards and Threats Reducing risk is about identifying hazards and eliminating threats. Strategic training offsets the risk and violence and elevates low risk behaviour to conscious competenceInformation4 Levels of Learning: Unconscious Incompetence
