Run with the help of the local IAM groups, the Advanced Rider Course aims to improve your skills and safety to make you a more confident biker in all conditions. 

Advanced Rider Course is aimed at riders on motorbikes or scooters that are able to reach the national speed limit, who are looking to improve their skills over a longer period of time.  For further information on their Free Taster sessions, ride-outs and the discount scheme, click on the link to the Rotherham Advanced Motorcyclists (RAM) or Sheffield & District Advanced Motorcyclists (SAM), and for full information on the Advanced Rider training programme, click onto the IAM main webpage. 

The South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership offers a subsidy to riders who enrol on the programme via the RAM and SAM groups in South Yorkshire, bringing the programme fees down from £149 to £99.  This includes all joining fees to the IAM for 12 months and the Advanced Rider training, as well as opening up many special offers available through the IAM.

A joint statement from RAM and SAM:-

"The South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership (SYSRP) has supported advanced rider training in South Yorkshire since 2011/12, when a pilot scheme was run to subsidise the IAMs Skill for Life programme.  In later years, a subsidy has been provided to encourage South Yorkshire residents to improve their riding skills.  With the support of the SYSRP and since the subsidy began, RAM and SAM have guided seventy-six local riders to complete the programme and receive the IAMs coveted "green badge".  Thirty-three of those riders passed their test in the current calendar year, of which seven achieved a First.  To learn more about us and advanced training, please visit our websites at RAM and SAM."
