Why Advanced Riding?

rider on bike

 

Every day we choose to ride our bikes without giving any additional thought to the fact that it may be one of the most dangerous things that we will do in that day.

We make up only 1% of road users but we account for 20% of road deaths!

The Aim of Shropshire and Powys Advanced Riders (SAPAR) is to reduce motorcycle accidents by encouraging an interest in road safety, and improving riding standards, knowledge and skill.

In order to do this SAPAR will provide free tutoring to help you improve your riding skills and prepare you to take the Ultimate Advanced Test.

We hope to help anyone who is interested in improving the standard of their motorcycle riding.

An Advanced rider is equipped with the knowledge and skill to ride safely and effectively in all conditions.

Important Information - Please read

The test may be taken using any motor vehicle. In all cases, the driver/rider must have a full valid licence for the vehicle on which the test is carried out. It must also be made clear that the type or capability of the vehicle used does not limit the grading which can be achieved. However, to be able to pass at gold standard the candidate must demonstrate an ability to drive at the national speed limits and so the vehicle used must allow this.
