What is Advanced Motorcycling?

‘Advanced’ motorcycling is the ability to control the position and speed of the machine safely, systematically, and smoothly, using road and traffic conditions to make safe progress unobtrusively, with skill and responsibility.

This skill requires a positive but courteous attitude and a high standard of riding competence based on concentration, effective all-round observation, anticipation, and planning.

All this must be co-coordinated with good handling skills. The motorcycle will always be at the right place on the road at the right time, travelling at the right speed with the correct gear engaged and can always be stopped safely in the distance that can be seen to be clear.
