Clarification on driver training

In a recent press release, we correctly pointed out that advanced driver and rider training (such as teaching drivers skid-control) has a very poor track record when it comes to reducing accidents (drivers tend become overconfident and take more risks).

Unfortunately, our press release led some people to assume we oppose all driver and rider training. This is nonsense. We strongly support professional instruction for beginners.

However, as stated in our original release, there is simply no evidence that so-called advanced driver or rider training offers any safety benefit whatover. We invite you to check these studies for yourselves.
