Training and campaigns carried out over the years, have contributed to reducing the number of motorcycle accidents on the roads. From the 1980s, SMC has pursued advanced training for motorcyclists in Sweden and road safety in SMC is based on this concept.
In addition to the traditional training courses SMC has developed special courses for various types of riders and bikes, for example, women, new riders, and riders of sports bikes.
SMC aims to expand the range of courses designed for specific risk groups, for example the sports bike rider project which began in 2002.
Statistics available from the Swedish Transport Authority (SRA) indicates that riders in class 7 to 11, the so-called sports bike riders, are over represented in serious or fatal crashes and are a major risk group. The sports bike project is now implemented as a part of the SMC School advanced courses.
