Advanced Riding

Passing your test is only a beginning, it allows you to go out on your own and to start really learning how to ride and there is still a lot for you to learn

Once you have achieved this then it's time to think of further training and going for an "Advanced" certificate.

The "Durham Advanced Motorcyclists" exist for this very purpose, they have a website at
