What do I need to become an advanced rider?

To have an open mind and be willing to learn.
What does the training involve?
RoSPA advanced rider training normally consists of lessons lasting between 1 – 2 hours arranged to suite both the student and the tutor.
The length of the training is flexible and is agreed between the student and the tutor as the training progresses.
Students are required :
- To supply and drive their own or other suitable motorcycle.
- The motorcycle must comply with all Cyprus road traffic laws with regard to construction, lights, tyres and circulation licence (Road Tax).
- To hold a FULL valid driving licence for that class of motorcycle.
- To have insurance covering the student to drive that vehicle. The student must produce the above documents for inspection on request. If not produced the training cannot proceed.
- The student is responsible for all running costs, fuel etc.
Riders must wear a protective helmet which complies with legislation and clothing and footware that will afford protection in the event of a crash. The tutor has the discretion not to proceed with training if he or she feels the clothing is inadequate.
The first meeting:
Having made contact with us an appointment will be made for you to have a riding assessment. This will be carried out by an Examiner or a Tutor. It’s informal and gives you a chance to meet us and discuss your goals in receiving training.
One of the aims of the course is to prepare the student to pass the RoSPA Advanced Riding Test, although this is not essential.
If you decide to go ahead, the RoADAR Cyprus membership fee will be payable at the first training session.
Current costs, membership and test fees can be found here.
All the training is based on “Motorcycle Roadcraft” the British Police Riders handbook.
