Preventing crime, protecting the public and helping those in need
Bikesafe is a national initiative run by police forces around the country which aims to reduce motorcycling casualties.
Here in the West Midlands, the one day workshops are run from the West Midlands Police Training Centre at Tally Ho!, Edgbaston, Birmingham (next to Warwickshire cricket ground).
The course aims to give participants a greater understanding of the risks involved in riding motorcycles on today’s roads and be better equipped to combat them. You will have a lot of fun with other motorcyclists and get more enjoyment from your machine safely.
One day courses for 2015 are priced at £50

You must bring with you:
You will obviously need a road legal bike (including road legal registration number plate) and must wear suitable clothing.
Each workshop will have no more than 18 students.
The day starts at 8.30am where you will get a chance to meet fellow riders and the police officers who will be with you for the entire day. This is followed by initial registration and document check.
The students are split into three small groups of six who take part in three 90 minute sessions, split as follows:
The course is very much tailored for the needs and concerns of the riders on each day. All classroom sessions are delivered by qualified police motorcycle instructors or suitably qualified facilitators.
Students will need to bring their own food/drinks for the hour lunch break. This break provides an opportunity to review and discuss the sessions with other course participants and the guiding police officers in a relaxed and friendly environment.
The day ends with a debrief, review of the day’s experiences and guidance as to how to continue rider enhancement. The course finishes at approximately 4.30pm.
At no stage will you be encouraged to do anything you are not comfortable with. You certainly will not be asked to ride quicker than you are entirely happy with (a common misconception of advanced rider courses).
