Reading Materials

Postby Mike.J.Roberts » Fri May 22, 2009 11:25 am

Whether you've passed the IAM test or are now preparing for it, it always pays to be up to date with the rules and regulations of the road.

With this in mind essential reading is the 'Official Highway Code', but despite what people think it does not fully cover all the road signs / markings used on the UK roads. For this you need 'Know Your Traffic Signs' (if you still have the one with a yellow cover you need an update :!: )

The links below take you to Amazon.co.uk who at the time of writing will send you both publications for the princely sum of £6.59 inc delivery (make sure you select Super Saver Delivery in the checkout).

You could also add a copy of 'Motorcycle Roadcraft' to make your essential reading complete.

Official Highway Code

Know Your Traffic Signs

Motorcycle Roadcraft

Just in case some of you haven't found this.............

Not quite as handy as the paperback copy, but the Highway Code is available online, with the benefit of being able to search for topics/items.
