Free scooter and motorcycle training

Motorcycle Training Learner

To help combat motorcycle casualties in the area, Caerphilly County Borough Council are offering free courses aimed at riders to take after their Compulsory Basic Training (CBT).

Scooter Smart is a one day course aimed at post CBT Riders who haven’t undertaken further training.  It is suitable for any riders of bikes up to 125cc.


Commuter Safe is a one day course aimed at riders of bikes below 600cc, who mainly use their bike for commuting to work or college.

The courses aim to provide bikers with relevant and targeted refresher training to help reduce accidents and associated casualties and to enhance the safety of each rider by increasing their hazard awareness on the road.

These courses are FREE to attend, and are being funded by the Welsh Government. Scooter and motorcycle training will be delivered by a former Police Traffic Officer.


The objectives of each course are to give each rider a greater understanding of vulnerability, basic vehicle road worthiness checks, tyre care and road surface hazards, hazard awareness particularly at junctions, roundabouts and whilst filtering, anticipating the actions of others and overtaking.

If you would like to participate, or require further information please contact Jessica Carter in the road safety team on 01495 235078 or email
