    +1 for the IAM. I did the IAM then one of the members was a met police rider and organised an IAM specific bike safe day. My IAM training manged me to get an A rating on the bike safe day. I tried my best to lose the police rider, but damn they're too god!

    For those that are near Staffs check out Lichfield Bikers, run by Police motorcyclists.

    Bikesafe

    Did one yesterday with Essex Police, excellent day, many pointers, when filling in the forms I realised that I have been riding for 48 years This Essex course is heavily subsidised at £10 for the day and I believe a free follow up day with advanced rider training. Cheers, John B

    Well I did the bike safe course up in Taunton when last home on leave.
    What can i say .
    Excellent for the morning that they cram in.

    Excellent instructor/Copper. When he has explained certain aspects of the road positioning etc and then you are following them.
    They make it look so effortless.
    Very professional.
    Time to get extra lessons i think.

    A quote from the Policeman debriefing me after one partricular "spirited ride!..."I don't recall seeing an 80 mph speed sign, or indeed a 90mph sign"! Classic

    They assess your riding in minutes and that will be what level they feel you are safe at, no tickets given but a friendly but firm "wind it in a bit"!

    They do get people who take the piss and ignore the seminar stuff but they tend to run of talent before the Plod biker, which does dampen their spirits!

    Not when I did mine! I asked about speeds, strictly the limit in 30s &40s he said. What about the open road I asked " Well not too much over 90 eh" was the response. He did add that if I got nicked by other police he couldn't help me. This was a good few years ago and it was a 2 day course but I echo what has been said. I learnt so much especially about observation.

    Just do it would be my advice

    John
    Still misbehaving.

    Which you can do through the week, as you are either on strike or on the sick.
