BMF Blue Riband course - from £290

This Advanced Rider Award is an accredited course based on “advanced riding” concepts taught to police riders, and the System of Motorcycle Control documented in “Roadcraft – the Police Rider’s Handbook”. It is designed for riders who already have a working knowledge of advanced riding techniques and builds perfectly upon the ERS course. 

As such, the course usually takes place over one or two days. There is an independent test to be taken and success earns you a certificate, a metal lapel pin, a shiny sticker, and a year’s membership of the BMF. To keep the qualification active the test must be re-taken every three years. As with ERS, some insurers will offer a discount if this qualification is attained.
