Monmouthshire bikers offered free training
Monmouthshire County Council is offering free training sessions to enable young motorcyclists to enhance and refresh their riding skills.
The RideSafe course covers positioning, speed and observation and is intended for young people who have passed their compulsory basic training test (CBT).
Courses will be held at three locations during January, February and March 2015.
Councillor Bryan Jones, cabinet member with responsibility for road safety, said: “Motorcyclists are 55 times more likely than car drivers to be killed or seriously hurt in a collision, so the RideSafe course is a vital step for young motorcyclists who wish to travel safely and responsibly.”
The free courses are being organised by Carolyn Derosaire, Monmouthshire’s road safety officer.
