    This space deliberately left blank as the author writes too much pretentious bollocks as it is.

    Does the Bikesafe content change year on year. Obviously the basics remain the same, but will it just be a repeat of previous years?

    I've only done one so far (but just about to book up again now) but the impression I got was that it's tailored to your level and they work around that rather than a specific structure per se?

    even if the classroom element is similar, you will most likely be paired with a different observer so the feedback you get is likely to be different. We all pick up bad habits from time to time so the observer might pick up on this if relevant or, if you get positive feedback, this in itself is validation that will improve your self confidence.

    Note, some schemes will not allow you to take the course a 2nd time and will signpost you to the IAM for more advanced training.

    It is quite dull though... not sure I could cope with it twice.
