Earlier this month, Transport for London and the Mayor of London have announced plans to create three new training courses for riders in the capital, to boost rider confidence, skill and knowledge.
The move is part of TfL and the Mayor’s Vision Zero approach to eliminating death and serious injury from collisions on the capital’s roads by 2041. TfL published figures in September which showed motorcycle riders and their pillions accounted for 27% of serious injuries and 28% of all road fatalities in London during 2016.
