Institute of Advanced Motorists to offer Lancashire motorcyclists a new training day

Posted on


Britain’s leading road safety charity, the IAM (Institute of Advanced Motorists), is set to offer Lancashire motorcyclists a short series of new Rider Assessment Days, with the support of RideSafe BackSafe.

The day-long courses will include both theory sessions and practical on-road assessments with fully qualified IAM Instructors, before finishing with constructive feedback and open discussions about road safety and issues of greatest concern to motorcyclists. RideSafe BackSafe Project Lead, Shelby Williams explains:

“RideSafe BackSafe is constantly promoting the benefits of rider skills training and we are delighted to be working closely with IAM on a project that sits at the heart of our own road safety initiative for bikers. The courses are focussed on the needs of motorcyclists as vulnerable road users and can open the door to more in depth skills training with IAM“.

The courses will all be held at Lancashire Police headquarters at Hutton, near Preston, on Saturday 23rd May, Saturday 13th June and Saturday 18th July. Each day will start at 9.30am with light refreshments and an introduction to the day’s timetable of activities and the final sessions should finish at around 3.30pm.

The cost is just £20 per person for one day. Any motorcyclist who wishes to attend should register in advance by eMailing their full name, address and day time telephone number to Shelby Williams at [email protected] with ‘IAM Rider Assessment Days’ in the subject box.
