Biker Down

"I personally think Biker Down should become part of the official part of working towards a bike license. Brilliant course, well presented and very thought provoking." From a recent Biker Down participant.

 

Biker Down is a FREE course that offers motorcyclists the opportunity to learn practical skills to help avoid being involved in a crash, as well as essential first-aid training and advice on what to do should they find themselves first on the scene of a crash where someone is injured.

This three hour session covers the following topics:

  • Initial Scene Management
  • First Aid for motorcyclists with the help of MAGPAS
  • The science of being seen

Our Biker Down course does not involve a motorbike ride out.

Once you’ve completed the course you’ll receive a certificate.
