Surrey Police Rider Skills Days

The aim of Surrey Police Rider Skills Days (BikeSafe) are to reduce motorcycle casualties, enhance rider skill levels and to be enjoyable. BikeSafe (Surrey) is staffed by operational Advanced Police Class 1 motorcyclists, with assistance given by accredited IAM and RoSPA observers.

To attend a BikeSafe workshop with Surrey Police, you will need to hold a category A1, A2 or A licence and if you’ve only just passed your test, we suggest getting a few months experience before coming to us. At Surrey  Police, BikeSafe is not aimed at those who have already passed an advanced test however all motorcyclists are welcome.

To attend BikeSafe, you will need to be riding one of the following:

  1. ‘A1’ category-light motorcycle
  2. ‘A2’ category-restricted motorcycle
  3. ‘A’ category-unrestricted motorcycle.

Please note that BikeSafe (Surrey) is not suitable for riders who only hold a Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) certificate. However, riders on 125cc motorcycles, who hold an ‘A1’ licence and can reach national speed limits –  are more than welcome.

BikeSafe aims to be as practical as possible

BikeSafe workshops with Surrey Police tend to start at 9am and finishes no later than 5pm. There will normally be space for a total of eight riders per workshop. Riders should come prepared for changes in the weather.

A BikeSafe workshop with Surrey Police begins with a brief interactive presentation on motorcycle roadcraft. This is followed by a number of observed road rides, where the ratio of observer to riders will normally be 1 to 2. BikeSafe aims to be as practical as possible and to take into account your level of riding experience, alongside any specific objectives. At BikeSafe Surrey, your workshop fee includes lunch and a copy of ‘Motorcycle Roadcraft’ (the police manual). Surrey BikeSafe workshops are available between March and October.
