ACU Training Course for Road Race Licence Applicants

As part of the ACU’s ongoing policy of rider development and education, and in line with requirements as laid down in the 2015 ACU Handbook, all first time applicants for Road Race Licences must undergo a classroom training course and a basic riding ability test.

The purpose of the classroom course is to ensure that you understand the basic safety and organisational requirements to participate in road racing. Before any new licence can be issued, you must satisfactorily attend the course and pass the multiple-choice test. If you have any worries that you may find the end of course test difficult to complete, please call Darley Moor Race Club on 01246 866537.

In addition to this course all applicants for a Road Race Licence must undergo a Basic Rider Assessment Course to show you have the ability to ride a motorcycle.

To take part in this course you must have the use of a motorcycle, but not necessarily a racing

motorcycle, and a full set of protective clothing. You can ride any motorcycle for the Basic Riding Ability Test it does not have to be a Racing Motorcycle. The motorcycle should not have any race numbers showing during the test.

BLD Group Launches Online Shop

BLD Group have always followed the doctrines of their memorable strap line, “Staffed by Bikers. Managed by Bikers. For Bikers.” And this is even more evident with the launch of a new online shop geared towards motorcyclists. Almost a year ago, BLD expanded its services to online bookings where customers could choose services, dates, times and even methods of payments in a manner that was convenient for them.  It’s from this sturdy platform that BLD have expanded their e-commerce into this new website.

The BLD Shop is in the first of several planned stages where BLD offer bikers what they want and need. Their current range of products covers the general and practical needs of the average biker. It also includes a “Dave Stoppie Recommends” page which has his favourite items for sale.  Future stages of the shop will include integration of some high profile brands which will expand the shop’s reach even further.

“It’s a very exciting time at BLD. As a dynamic and ever-growing organisation focused on our customers, this was a logical next step for us and we couldn’t be more delighted,” – Jason Richards, CEO of BLD Group.
