Motorcycles and Scooters
- Motorcycle Safety
- Further information
Motorcycles are an important way for people to travel, particularly in supporting access to employment. However motorcyclists face disproportionately high levels of risk on our roads.
In London, there are 10 times as many male motorcyclists killed or seriously injured as female motorcyclists, and male riders have a higher risk per kilometre travelled.
Most motorcycle collisions occur in the morning and evening commuting periods. The risk of injury per distance travelled is higher for motorcyclists later at night.
To ensure riders have the skills, knowledge and experience necessary to ride safely, Haringey Smarter Travel are sponsoring subsidised CBT lessons for anyone who lives, works or studies in the borough.
Please take note that if you book a course and fail to attend, or if you are not successful on the course, you will not be eligible to apply for the discount more than once.
If you are interested in booking a lesson please contact '1 Stop Instruction' on Freephone: 0800 848 8418 or email email@example.com
Please remember to quote the promotional code 'the Haringey CBT scheme'.
Do you or your colleagues ride a motorcycle or scooter in London? Then you could be entitled to a free Rider Skills Day.
BikeSafe and ScooterSafe-London Rider Skills Days are a great way to boost your riding ability and improve your safety on the road. Run in partnership with the Metropolitan Police Service, the courses offer expert advice, including an observed ride on urban and rural roads with police motorcyclists. They will offer guidance on everything from choosing the right gear and spotting hazards to making yourself visible.
