As part of an ongoing effort to improve biker safety in Buckinghamshire motorcycle riders are being encouraged to take part in one of the 2017 Be a Better Biker assessment day courses.

The day courses are delivered by Thames Vale Advanced Motorcyclists (TVAM) and supported by Transport for Buckinghamshire (TfB) and Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue. The assessments include workshops and an on-road assessment with a TVAM observer.

There are currently two assessment day courses scheduled which will be held at Marlow Fire Station on Saturday 17th June 2017 and Saturday 22nd July 2017.

154 bikers have been killed or seriously injured on Buckinghamshire’s roads in the last three years. Since launching in 2004, the Be a Better Biker initiative has offered hundreds of local bikers advanced training on skills such as manoeuvring, overtaking and cornering techniques.

There are only 12 places available on each of the assessment days. To avoid disappointment contact TfB today by calling 01296 382338 or by email at [email protected]. The assessments cost £20 per person.
