Advanced Motorcycling Course

IAM RoadSmart

To become an advanced motorcyclist, you will need to join “IAM RoadSmart” and be coached locally by a Nationally
Qualified Motorcycle Observer.  Classroom theory sessions are provided in Elgin library; the course schedule shows the topics covered, and theory put into practice during on-road Observed Rides.  The course fee is normally £149, but for a limited period it's £134 and includes: the theory sessions; observed rides; 12 months’ membership of the IAM RoadSmart and the Moray Group; your Advanced Riding Course Log Book and the Test fee.  We also offer £30 cash back to anyone under 26 on successful completion of the course, making the Total Cost £104.

Once you've enrolled, you'll be allocated an Observer to take you through the on-road aspects of the course on a one-to-one basis.  Rides arranged between you and your Observer at mutually convenient times during the week, weekends or evenings, but not in the winter months.  They are conducted in a relaxed and informal style and can last up to 2 hours.  The average number of rides needed to successfully pass the Advanced Test, is about 6 to 8 for the rider who can readily absorb and apply the theory.  However, this can vary considerably and may take 2 to 3 months but we would expect all candidates to be ready to attempt the test within 6 months. The Moray Group has a 100% success rate of first-time passes for candidates!  Observers give their time freely to assist you and others in developing motorcycle skills on observed runs, so we ask you to make a voluntary contribution of £5 per run towards your Observer's motorcycle expenses. This is capped to a maximum of £50 over the duration of the course. If you are not sure about advanced motorcycling, why not contact us for more information?

Come and ‘have a go' – You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
