Advanced Rider



Have you mastered the basics but want to get more out of your riding? Improve on your riding skills or confidence?! At ALBA MTA we offer various advanced rider training and awards and will advise you which course is the most suitable for you – taking your ultimate aims into consideration.

What about the possibility of cheaper insurance?

A good rider never stops learning. If you’re already an experienced motorcyclist, advanced rider training can teach you to become even better.

The BMF Blue Riband rider award is an advanced riding course designed to help competent, experienced motorcyclists reach their true potential. BMF’s training will help reduce errors in your riding, enhance your handling skills and enable you to identify your strengths and weaknesses on the road. The course teaches you how to be more in control of your motorcycle, while giving you vital skills to anticipate and control situations, reducing your risk of accidents.

You’ll ride better and safer, without losing any of the enjoyment.

The BMF Blue Riband is delivered on a one-to-one basis by fully trained and qualified advanced motorcycle instructors. These BMF-certified instructors will guide you in improving your observation, planning and control in a positive, relaxed and friendly manner.

Course details

The Blue Riband advanced riding course is held over a day and a half.

The first day commences with a short discussion about the various techniques you will practice. This is followed by theory, demonstration rides and practical training. The day is divided into sections, with numerous comfort breaks where candidates are actively encouraged to discuss the training so far. The finish time will be dependent on the candidate’s progress, weather and enthusiasm!

Providing you have reached the required standard by the end of the first day, you will then be able to take the Blue Riband rider award assessment. This will take place as soon as possible – usually the next day.

Alternative timetable

For a less intense approach to the course, there is the option to separate your practical riding into multiple sessions. You can do these at times convenient to yourself and your instructor.
