RoADAR NorthEast

We are the local group of RoSPA Advanced Drivers and Riders (RoADAR); a team of volunteers promoting safe and more rewarding Driving and Riding through improved skills. As one of over fifty regional groups throughout the UK, we provide the training and support you need to pass the RoADAR Advanced Driving or Riding test, and become a full member of the national RoADAR organisation.

We are a non-profit organisation whose members pay a small annual subscription to cover the running costs of the the group. Training for members is free.

Everyone involved in the group participates on a volunteer basis. The Driving tutors and Riding tutors give up their time for free to pass on the valuable skills they have learned. The management committee are volunteers who give up their time to organise tutoring activities, group meetings, special events, guest speakers, resources for members and to liaise with other local organisations and the national RoADAR organisation.

The group is run for the benefit of its members and warmly welcomes any member volunteering to help with the running of the club.

Our webmaster, John, produces our “Open Roads” newsletter, now bi-monthly; you can get the current copy here, and back issues from the “public documents” link on the Links & Documents page.
