BikeSafe BikeSafe is aimed at 'Bridging the Gap' between becoming a full motorcycle license holder and undertaking accredited post-test training. The 'BikeSafe' scheme is currently offered by around 34 Forces and Partners in England, Wales and Ireland. BikeSafe workshops involve online theory sessions to identify areas of attitudinal and road risk and suggest methods employed by emergency service motorcyclists to reduce those risks. Thereafter, a client's riding is observed by a Police officer or one of our highly trained Police Volunteers, resulting in development and signposting to further advanced training if suitable. Make yourself a better and safer rider, and enjoy riding on 2 wheels more. Greater Manchester Police For 2024 GMP have workshops running from March to October. These will start from GMP Eccles Police Station Hardy Street Eccles ManchesterM30 7JA Expected Dates 28th April, 12th May, 16th June, 28th July, 18th Aug, 8th Sept, and 20th Oct Check availablility and book via the GMP Bikesafe page
