"Advanced Driving and Riding is the ability to control the position and speed of the vehicle safely, systematically, and smoothly, using road and trafic conditions to progress unobtrusively with skill and responsibility." 
"This skill requires a positive but courteous attitude and a high standard of driving and riding competence, based on concentration, effective all round observation, anticipation and planning." 
"This must be co-ordinated with good handling skills."
"The vehicle should be at the right place on the road, at the right time, travelling at the right speed, with the correct gear engaged, and can always be stopped safely on its own side of the road in the distance that can be seen to be clear."
