North Yorkshire BikeSafe

With some of the best roads in the country, North Yorkshire is the ideal place to complete a BikeSafe workshop.

North Yorkshire Police offers motorcycle workshops as part of the forces continuing drive to reduce road casualties. We offer motorcyclists the opportunity to complete their BikeSafe observed ride on some of the most picturesque roads in North Yorkshire. It’s a great opportunity to have your motorcycle skills assessed by one of our advanced police motorcyclists, with the aim of identifying areas of risk, improving your riding and make you a safer/more skilled motorcyclist. North Yorkshire BikeSafe participants will learn about the significant benefits of investing further time in post-test motorcycle training (IAM, RoSPA and the DVSA Enhanced Rider Scheme). Ongoing training is the key to becoming a safer, more skilled rider and with this is the added benefit that riding a motorcycle becomes more enjoyable.

Don’t leave it too long to book as we usually fill up quickly!

Workshop information

North Yorkshire BikeSafe is open to riders who hold a full motorcycle licence. Our team of officers, who are advance car and motorcycle trained, will be on hand to answer any questions and give real life examples. We are all passionate motorcyclists and want you to get the best from your experience on two wheels, whilst being as skilled and safe as possible.

Our one-day workshops include a morning theory class that covers attitude, observation, cornering, overtaking, filtering, junctions, group riding, hazard awareness and the system of motorcycle control. This is not a lecture, and we encourage discussion throughout. If there is an area you want us to concentrate more on – just ask. Then it’s out on the road with a police motorcyclist for your observed ride. With a ratio of 2:1 we will observe your riding and give you objective feedback and advice on how to further improve.

Don’t forget to bring some lunch, although we do tend to stop at a café during your observed ride. Please note that we have no facilities to provide food or drink. You will need to make sure you bring your own motorcycle. This must be at least 125cc, legal and roadworthy. Please also bring your driving licence, insurance documents and MOT certificate (if applicable). We highly recommend that you wear full motorcycle clothing and that you dress for the weather.

Group and corporate bookings

If you are part of a group or business, it may be possible to arrange a private workshop. We are happy to hear from groups, organisations, and companies who place importance on motorcycle safety and would value private/bespoke delivery of a police-led BikeSafe workshop. We can deliver BikeSafe on any set day to suit your groups or business needs, all the we ask is that we have groups of no more than 12 per session. [get in touch]
