Gwent BikeSafe

Gwent Police will be running a series of one day BikeSafe workshops and two day ‘Bridging the Gap’ workshops during the year. These workshops are specifically designed for motorcyclists who wish to enter into post test motorcycle training. Post-test training has proved to be of benefit to riders of all levels and experience. The cost of Gwent BikeSafe includes hot food, refreshments and literature. An extra £10 per day is charged for pillions. Gwent BikeSafe workshops are a mix of theory and practical sessions and will include on-road observed rides, information videos, motorcycle related first aid and other relevant issues.
