Advanced Riding

Improving rider skills and safety

Advanced riding groups have a significant part to play in encouraging riders to improve their safety. Volunteers help encourage riders to adopt a systematic approach and defensive riding techniques, to improve their overall riding skills and safety. Many groups have a flourishing social scene that compliments their training ethos.

There are five principal national groups that promote advanced riding, all of which have local groups:

Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM): www.iam.org.uk
Cheddar Valley Advanced Motorcyclists (CVAM - a local IAM group): www.cvam.info
Somerset Advanced Motorcyclists (SAM - a local IAM group): www.somersetadvancedmotorcyclists.org.uk
RoSPA Advanced Riders and Drivers (RoADaR): www.roadar.org
Devon and Somerset Advanced Riders (DSAR - a local RoADaR group): www.dsar.co.uk
