The highly experienced instructors closely review and guide riding technique during all the sessions, with the added use of earpieces. The sessions will involve a range of theory and practical exercises in a safe and controlled environment. The participants will be taught to improve specific skill areas, including emergency braking, hazard avoidance and slow speed control manoeuvres.  

Bennetts Senior Marketing Manager and Rider Confidence Day Graduate, Marisa Sloper, commented “Since 2020 we’ve worked closely alongside the amazing team at Shires to bring this exclusive course to the next level. Part of our mission at Bennetts is to help riders get more from motorcycling and after personally completing the course, I strongly believe the quality of training that’s on offer is unrivalled.
