What is BikeSafe?

BikeSafe is a national police-led motorcycle road safety scheme, aimed at working with bikers in a relaxed environment. The idea is to raise awareness of key risks and to create a genuine desire to progress to accredited post-test training. BikeSafe aims to bridge the gap between passing your motorcycle test and becoming a more confident and skilful advanced rider.

What does it involve?

A BikeSafe workshop is a one day event incorporating a morning classroom based session looking at key areas of motorcycle safety, including:

  • Hazard Awareness
  • Positioning
  • Cornering
  • Overtaking
  • Observation
  • Group Riding

This is followed by an on-road observed ride-out with a police motorcyclist.

It’s a fun, informal day and the benefits could last a lifetime.

What can BikeSafe do for you?

A BikeSafe workshop will provide a taster of safer riding techniques. You will receive a Certificate of Completion, a free “goodie bags” stuffed with biking-related items and an opportunity to benefit from incentives, such as a discount on insurance costs and advanced training fees.

Further Information

BikeSafe workshops are delivered at locations across Northern Ireland, including Newtownards, Belfast, Ballymena, Enniskillen and Newry.
