Dragon Rider Cymru
Dragon Rider Cymru is a motorcycle training course supported by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency Enhanced Rider Scheme and Thunder Road Motorcycles of South Wales.
The Road Safety Teams from the Counties of Carmarthenshire, Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and Pembrokeshire, have worked in partnership to develop this course of advanced rider skills that is delivered by experienced and qualified motorcycle instructors who are accredited by the DVSA Register of Post Test Motorcycle Instructors. Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue service are also supporting the initiative.
The courses are held on weekends and are one day in duration. The course will consist of a morning classroom based session that takes place at designated Fire and Rescue stations in Carmarthen, Llanelli, Ammanford and Haverfordwest. The afternoon will be road based, using a variety of roads throughout the County and neighbouring counties to meet the motorcycle training needs of the individual rider, based on the advanced Police rider manual, Roadcraft.
Riders who have completed the Bikesafe course are encouraged to bring copies of their assessment forms for the afternoon session. The training ratio will be one instructor to a maximum of two riders for the on road element. Training will be tailored to meet the individual needs of the rider.
At the conclusion of the day participants will be issued with a certificate of competence that is recognised by a wide variety of insurance companies and may attract a premium discount.
