Basic, Advanced, Refresher & Skill Set Motorcycle Training.
We never stop learning.
We never stop learning and in the world of motorcycling we really want to avoid the mistakes. At best it’s costly and if you’re not so lucky it could hurt more than just your pocket.
Here in Norfolk we are so very lucky to have a host of options to further your motorcycle skills at pretty much any level. From Norfolk County Council’s “Think! Hugger” initiative offering one to one assessments and training and the Norfolk Constabulary’s Safe Rider Courses through to machine control skills offered by i2i and Camrider who are affiliated with us through the MCIA to provide Ducati and Kawasaki manufacturer backed motorcycle training from CBT to full test.
I have had first hand experience of Safe Rider, i2i and have been fortunate enough to ride with Andy Micklethwaite (Ex Police Rider) who’s skills, smooth riding and forward thinking never cease to amaze me. I cannot recommend any of these courses enough. (Vince/Seastar Superbikes)

Police Safe Rider – True Roadcraft
Norfolk Constabulary’s Safe Rider scheme is a partnership project with Norfolk County Council. It introduces people to police defensive riding practices through a demonstration ride by a police motorcyclist, and assessed rides. It involves one evening classroom session and a weekend road session with a 3:1 ratio. It is great fun, very relaxed and informal. You may well be amazed what you will learn. It is only available to full licence holders and costs £50, although under 25’s will only be charged £25. You can contact Andy Micklethwaite 01603 638115, visit their website or email email@example.com to discuss dates.
i2i Motorcycle Academy – Master The Machine
Radically different to Roadcraft based training but enhance it so that, if you make a mistake, you are less likely to panic and do the wrong thing. You will be much more relaxed with the bike knowing what it is capable of doing.
i2i run various courses at Scottow Enterprise Park (former RAF Coltishall), educating riders into what makes the bike do what it does. You will learn advanced braking techniques, stability exercises, what initiates lean, what holds the bike through turns, slow riding and much more. You can enquire or book online at www.i2imca.com
They are priced at £150 per day for MC1 and MC3 with numbers reduced to a maximum of 9 per day to improve the quality of training for customers.
