If you ride a motorcycle or scooter you’ll know that they can sometimes be the quickest and almost certainly the most enjoyable way to travel from A to B, and with ever increasing fuel costs they can be a more cost effective method of commuting to work or college.
With increasing traffic volumes on our roads it is important that bikers and scooter riders are prepared for the unexpected, particularly when you consider that 75% of rider casualties in the Yorkshire & Humber region occur as a result of a collision with another vehicle.
Training and improving your skills is a life long necessity as a powered two wheeled rider and the South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership are offering a discounted Sharp Rider course. The normal rate for the course is £100 but, after teaming up with South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue (SYFR) the course is being offered at £20.
The ‘Post Test’ course is taken over two days, (second day at riders convenience), with workshops and practical on-road training, leading to a DSA riding assessment and certificate. Suitable for riders who have just passed their full big bike test, are returning to riding after a break, upgrading to a more powerful motorcycle, or just want to check their riding standards.
