The course is available to motorbike, scooter and moped riders of all ages and abilities across Herefordshire, Shropshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire.

The course can be taken over half a day or a full day and is tailored to the needs of the individual rider, suiting beginners and experienced riders alike.

The course is part-funded by the Safer Roads Partnership in Warwickshire and West Mercia, and delivered by RMT Motorcycle Training.
