RoSPA, £47 if you are under 26 and £57 if older.
RoSPA's Advanced Motorcycle Training is based on the 'System of motorcycle control' as detailed in Motorcyle Roadcraft - The Police Riders Handbook.

The four day course will prepare you for the Advanced Riding Test and aims to make you better at anticipating changes, more observant and with enhanced handling skills. Where IAM is only Pass or Fail, the ROSPA has 3 levels of pass Bronze, Silver or Gold.
