Norfolk Safe Rider Course

2018 marks the 20th year of the Norfolk Constabularly Safe Rider course. Safe Rider is a joint initiative between Norfolk Constabulary and Norfolk County Council which aims to reduce motorcycle casualties.

The scheme comprises a series of downloads to keep, a two-and-a-half hour evening session and a five hour road session.

·      The underlying message of our workshops is that education is the key, not enforcement.

·      In a conflict free environment, riders will be introduced to the police roadcraft system - the corner stone of police riding.

·      The workshop provides individuals with professional advice and confirms their strengths and identifies their weaknesses as a rider.

·      During the road session you will receive a demonstration ride by a police rider and there will be an opportunity to have your riding assessed with constructive feedback.

Safe Rider is available to residents of Norfolk and the border towns who have a full licence, including Category A2, and are not already members of an advanced riding group.

The course costs £50 and for this season under 25’s are half price at just £25. This course is a great way to kick start the year, gain new skills and create a safer environment for yourself and other road users.
