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.

Nationwide BikeSafe workshops in the Greater Manchester area for the benefit
