Derbyshire Police BikeSafe

Derbyshire’s police motorcyclists share a passion for riding and a desire to make sure that all bikers stay safe in the beautiful county of Derbyshire. All police riders have to undergo advanced training and regular assessments to be part of the constabulary’s motorcycle team. Once qualified, an important part of their work is to share their knowledge about safe riding behaviour with the county’s motorcyclists. 

As such, savvy Derbyshire motorcyclists who aspire to improving their skills/safety on two wheels can attend a one-day BikeSafe workshop. Derbyshire BikeSafe helps fully licenced riders to stay safe on the roads by empowering them to further develop their skills. Topics covered include advanced positioning skills, bike control, hazard awareness, observation, cornering, braking, and overtaking.

Derbyshire BikeSafe is run from Butterley Hall in Ripley. Each workshop consists of a classroom session covering safe riding techniques; and a two-hour observed ride. Participants also benefit from nine BikeSafe eLearning modules which offer a good foundation of advanced riding skills knowledge. Once participants have completed their ride, their BikeSafe Observer will give advice about how to improve. They may also recommend an advanced riding course with IAM RoadSmart or the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
