Motorcyclists

  • Position yourself in the safest and best place to maximise your visibility of potential hazards.
  • Take a “lifesaver’ glance over your shoulder before carrying out manoeuvres, so you know where other vehicles are.
  • Make sure to wear the right gear. Fall off your bike and tarmac will shed your jeans in seconds. Bikers must wear a protective jacket, gloves, boots and trousers.
  • Wear bright florescent gear during the day and reflective gear at night.
  • Choosing the right helmet could help save your life. Sharp ratings help you understand how much protection a helmet offers in a crash. Visit the SHARP website. 
  • Consider further skills training to improve your performance, confidence and safety on the road. RideFree is a new DVSA digital rider theory course. The free, voluntary scheme is aimed at new riders and contains a series of 6 online modules to be taken by the learner rider before they complete their CBT. Access RideFree here.
