The workshops are broken down into 3 main areas:
- Attitude to risk – Hazard management – System of motorcycle control
- Bends – Bend assessment
- Overtaking – Filtering – Group riding
The theory section of the workshop is completed on either three consecutive Tuesday evenings between 19.00 and 21.00 or a 1 day workshop from 09.00 – 16.00 which covers the same topics as the theory evenings.
On arrival for week 1 you will be given a goody bag, containing the latest copy of the Highway code, Motorcycle Road Craft (the Police motorcycling hand book) and some other useful items.
On completing the workshops, candidates will complete a One on One ride out with an advanced police motorcyclist. This ride is a mixture of roads to test your skill and ability, and to give the police rider the chance to observe all aspects of your riding.
The observed ride is not pass or fail. An evaluation form will be completed for you to take away to assist you get the most out of your motorcycling and hopefully take you on to further training with an approved provider. The Cambridge team have good partnerships with the local IAM and RoSPA groups and from time to time they drop in to the workshops to offer their services to you, should you wish to take your riding development further.
