Metropolitan Police Bikesafe

Real advice from real riders. Could you get more from your bike? At our rider skills days, professional police motorcyclists – who are all keen bikers – share the secrets of how to become a neater, smoother, safer and more confident rider. The days are run by officers from the Metropolitan Police Service.

We are the only police force in the country that offers this course to learner riders. So it doesn’t matter if you’re just starting off or if you’re a veteran rider, we cater for everyone’s needs. Our one-day session will include a morning classroom session that covers the below topics and is then followed by an observed ride.

  • Collision causation (right turn violations)
  • Cornering and bend assessment
  • Overtaking, filtering and group riding
  • Attitude to risk, plus hazard management
  • The system of motorcycle control

The aim of the day is simple: to help you enjoy safer biking even more. You’ll get advice that’ll make good sense to you at your stage and ability and help on where to get further training.
