Joining Derbyshire Riders is the ideal way to prepare for taking the RoSPA Advanced Motorcycle Test, meet like-minded motorcyclists and get involved in a range of events and activities.
Our membership year runs from 1 April – 31 March. Please feel free to contact Membership to discuss further the rules and charging currently agreed upon when joining mid-way through the year.
NB – we currently have a subsidy grant from the Derbyshire Road Safety Partnership towards New Associates joining specifically to learn the skills necessary to pass the RoSPA test. This subsidy grant is towards your joining fee and is available to new associates within Derbyshire. Please note – NB – the grant is a finite amount so places are limited. Please confirm / check with membership as to availability at the time of joining.
