Medway provides free training for young bikers
Medway Council’s road safety team has organised and delivered a free training session to equip young people who ride small motorbikes with the skills to help them be safer on the roads.
'Take Control', a moped and small motorbike challenge day, took place on 20 October at Medway Fire Station.
The road safety team worked in partnership with Kent Fire and Rescue and advisors from East Kent Advanced Motorcyclist Group to lay on the sessions which provided training and advice for 16 to 19 year olds.
The day gave riders the opportunity to show their riding skills, discuss riding issues, and receive emergency training.
The young people who attended and successfully completed the session received a certificate of attendance and discount vouchers.
