KeepYourWheels gives 16-18 yr old scooter, moped or motorbike riders living in the West Country the chance to gain extra rider skills and experience at their local CBT training centre, free DSA online theory test tutorials and £100 CBT money back reward, for 6 months of sensible scootering.
Max Rider is a road-riding development package that is aimed at the wants and needs of the individual. There is no test and it is not a course. It is designed for all riders who have a full licence, whether you are a novice, returning to biking after a long lay-off or are already an experienced rider and are interested in an assessment by one of our highly qualified instructors.
Biker Down is a free course for motorcyclists and motorcycle clubs. The course, which lasts about three hours, is in three parts: how to manage the scene of a bike crash; taking care of a casualty; and what may work (or not work) when it comes to making yourself more visible to other road users.
