Based on the UK Police system of motorcycle control (Motorcycle Roadcraft), this course is designed to introduce a controlled and planned approach to your riding.

The 'system' of motorcycle control was developed by the police training college in Hendon, London and is taught to all police riders before taking up traffic and pursuit duties. 

The course introduces the key principles below and creates a framework for their systematic application:

- Mental preparation
- Advanced observation
- Acceleration, braking and gear control  
- Cornering, balance and grip thresholds
- Interaction with other road users
- Taking correct positioning
- Safe overtaking

This is a full day course conducted one on one with an IAM Qualified Examiner using bike to bike radio throughout the course for timely feedback and interactive demonstrations.
