Phoenix Motorycle Training has been chosen by both Transport for London (TfL) and the Mayor of London to deliver two (2) different riding improvement courses to London’s riders.
Road safety is a key priority for the Mayor and TfL. In 2015 there were 540 motorcyclists killed or seriously injured (KSI) on London’s roads. While this equates to 26 per cent of all KSIs in the capital that year, the modal share of journeys across all boroughs for motorcycling is just 2 per cent of all road vehicle kilometres travelled in London.1 Our aim is to cut the number of those killed or seriously injured (on London’s roads) by 50% by 2020.
The Mayor’s Transport Strategy, commits to improving motorcycle safety through promoting a suite of voluntary training courses, including both the 1-2-1 Motorcycle Skills or the Beyond Compulsory Basic Training (CBT): Skills for Delivery Riders.
With both courses, you will have a dedicated fully-qualified motorcycle instructor for the duration of your course. Also, we will be issued a Certificate of Completion on behalf of Transport for London (TfL) and the Mayor of London upon course completion.
The aims of this course are to:
Equip Clients with the skills required to ride safely on urban roads, including how to filter, overtake and ride in bus lanes
Improve Clients’ hazard perception and defensive riding skills, e.g. when approaching a junction
Promote the appropriate use of personal protective equipment (PPE)
Help Clients to understand the need to ride at speeds appropriate to the road conditions
Promote further training if there is a need
1-2-1 Motorcycle Skills training sessions will be available to anyone who lives, works or studies in any of the 33 London boroughs, with a strong emphasis on those Clients who are:
However, it open to all riders who live, study or work in any of the 33 London boroughs (e.g. full motorcycle licence holders, all ages, etc.).
