What Good Will it do Me?

    You are significantly less likely to be
      involved in a crash or other traffic
                    incident;
         Riding will be less stressful;
   If you are involved in an accident the
  injuries tend to be less severe due to the
 rider’s greater awareness and anticipation.
   What do I do on the ADT?
  The test lasts about 90-minutes
  The ride must be SAFE, LEGAL and
PROGRESSIVE and THE SYSTEM MUST BE USED.
  Nationally 80% of associates pass first time;
  The Lisburn Group has a % pass record;
  All examiners hold a Police Advanced Riding
Certificate and are usually Police Class 1 riders.

             Things to help you
Once you have signed up for
the “Skills For Life” course,
this Manual comes directly to
you from IAM headquarters.
You will be expected to read
the chapters relative to your
needs, which will be identified
by your Observer each week.
By following the information
contained within this
document, you should find
your rides enjoyable and
stress free.
      Your bike must be road
      legal (especially plate
      size & cans).
      You must be wearing
LAM   suitable protective
      gear.
      Have enough fuel on
      board to cover 35-40
      miles.
      Visors must be scratch
      free.
       Always remember advanced
 techniques of machine control can only
   increase your safety and reduce the
       risk of an accident if they are
                supported by
positive attitudes, concentration, critical
  self-awareness and above all, by self-
                   control.


     Safety must remain your primary
         and overriding concern.
  SEE YOU ON A COURSE OF
       IMPROVEMENT
REMEMBER
 Learning is voluntary and that means that we
 need commitment from you;
 There is no such thing as a perfect ride;
 Let’s get it on!
