Motorcycles are an infinitely rewarding passion and pastime where the more you put in, the more you get out. Taking the decision to improve your riding will make you more confident, safer, and better equipped to deal with - and fully enjoy – the things that the world's roads can throw at us.
Our team at BMW Rider Training will help you build on the skills you've been using since you gained your licence and equip you with a range of techniques that cover everything from machine control to road positioning, observation, and overtaking.
The most common questions we get about Advanced Training are...
Advanced training is only for serious 'career' riders, isn't it?
I've passed my test, why do I need more training?
Advanced training is all about dull safety talks and slow riding, isn't it?
The truth is that gaining your licence is just the first step. The world's most skilled riders weren't born that way; instead, they are continually learning new techniques, assessing their performance and habits to ensure that they are riding at the best possible level.
Without the stress of an upcoming DVSA test, motorcycle training is a lot more fun than you might expect!
Our advanced training sessions are all about really enjoying the riding, layering fine-detail adjustments on your existing skills under the expert eye of our senior instructors to make you a better, safer, more confident rider.
Who will I train with?
Our 1:1 Premium Training and Advanced Road Skills courses are taught by our expert senior team who are some of the most experienced riders and instructors in the UK.
All of our tutors are either RoSPA Advanced Motorcycle Instructors, RoSPA Examiners, or serving police riders. The benefits and wisdom of the millions of miles they've covered will be passed on to you during your time with us.
I'm coming back to riding after a break, what course is right for me?
Our Road Skills Level 1 course is a perfect reintroduction to motorcycling. Over the two days, you'll familiarise yourself with a modern BMW motorcycle from our fleet on our private training area, as well as refresh your bike control and manual handling skills.
When you're feeling ready, you'll head out onto the road under the expert guidance of our instructor to refresh your on-road positioning, distance, and braking skills as well as rebuild your riding confidence.

I'm a qualified IAM rider, what course is right for me?
Our Road Skills Level 3 is perfect for those who already have some knowledge of advanced techniques. With the option to take a RoSPA assessment at the end of the 3 days, this course aims to bring your riding standard up to the highest civilian motorcycle certification available in the UK.
Alternatively, our 1:1 Premium Training offers an opportunity to refine your knowledge and develop your skills even further, without distractions.
