As a young rider do you struggle to find free motorcycle resources and training courses?
Many of our Wheels to Work customers have only just started riding for the first time. They understandably have less experience on the road than older riders.
A motorcycle or moped may also be the first vehicle they have used for their own transport, meaning there’s plenty of things to learn and prepare for.
What our younger or less experienced riders may not be aware of is the number of motorcycle resources and training courses that are available.
Resources & courses
The National Young Rider Forum was set up in 2019 by several road safety professionals from MCIA, MAG, local authority road safety teams, police forces, fire & rescue, and road safety partnerships from across the country.
The aim of the forum is to inform and inspire young riders to ride safely and reduce the number of collisions.
They embarked on a large research project to find out:
- The type of collisions young riders were involved in.
- Preferable protective gear worn by younger riders.
- Types of social media used to communicate with this group of riders.
Once all the data was gathered, a report was written which is available to download. The conclusions were then used to create videos and awareness campaigns to educate young riders to stay safe and ride with confidence.
Next month the National Young Rider Forum have partnered up with Warwickshire Road Safety Partnership for an event.
They are hosting a FREE webinar for Young Riders aged 16-24, as well as parents and carers of young riders. It will be held on 27th June at 6.30pm until 8pm.
Topics will include:
- Driving licences and CBT tests.
- Motorcycle PPE.
- Maintenance of your vehicle.
- Ways to improve riding skills.
Anyone who attends will have the opportunity to ask the experts questions on the topics discussed during the webinar.
