If confronted with a road collision, would you know what to do?

BikerDown! South Yorkshire is a FREE two hour session aimed at providing all motorbike and scooter riders who live or ride in the county with basic first-aid skills and awareness of 'road traffic collision' management.

The two hour session is both classroom and practical based, giving you the awareness if 'first on scene' of a collision of how to manage the area for everyone's safety, and provide basic first-aid skills if needed. 

While themed around a collision involving a rider, the skills and knowledge are equally as useful if you come across any vehicle collision whether four, three or two wheeled.  For example, as a rider you are more likely to filter through stationary traffic and be confronted with a collision as the reason for the build up, or come across an incident on remote country roads.

BikerDown! South Yorkshire is based on the hugely successful initiative originally devised by Kent Fire & Rescue Service, with advice and guidance provided by Safer Road Partners - Yorkshire Ambulance Service, SY Fire & Rescue Service and Road Safety Officers.

The two hour sessions are held on an evening through the week to obviously leave the weekends for riding!  Our interactive training base, The Lifewise Centre, at Hellaby, provides great access from J1 off of the M18, and a unique experience, combining classroom and practical scenario aspects to the session.

BikerDown! is open to individuals, both riders and pillions, groups of friends or riding clubs, up to a maximum of 12 attendee's per session.  If you would like to group book then please drop us an email.

To book a place or for further information then please contact saferroads@southyorks.pnn.police.uk, with your name, contact number and the date/location at which you would like to attend, (spaces are allocated on a 'first come, first served' basis.)

Please note BikerDown! South Yorkshire is entirely FREE and everyone that completes the session will receive a certificate of attendance and a road-safety pack.
