The one-day course normally costs £45 but it is now available for free for any person who lives, works, or studies in Kingston.
Free motorcycle workshops are being introduced in Kingston by BikeSafe-London and ScooterSafe-London.
Kingston Council are teaming up with Transport for London and the police in the hope of reducing the number of bikers being hurt each year.
The scheme sees professional motorcyclists from the City of London and the Metropolitan Police teaching bikers to become neater, smoother and safer when on the roads.
Usually the one-day course costs £45 but it is now available for free for any person who lives, works, or studies in Kingston.
Dates are available until the end of the year and keen riders can even book a course which runs on Christmas day.
The course day is split into classroom based advise and presentations, as well as ride-outs.
Attendees will receive a certificate and a free lunch while becoming far more confident when riding.
“The BikeSafe workshops are an excellent opportunity for motorcyclists and scooter riders to learn how to be more safety conscious when out and about,” said Councillor Simon James, Lead Member for Transport at Kingston Council.
“I would urge anyone who can, to take advantage of these free sessions.”
Mick Cheeseman of the Motorcycling Tasking Team at BikeSafe said: “We try on our day long workshops to give riders additional skills that will stay with them for life in a friendly, relaxed manner.
“Well, as friendly and relaxed as riding around with a motorcycle copper behind you can be!”
