MONMOUTHSHIRE County Council will offer young motorcyclists free training sessions to enhance and refresh their riding skills. 

The RideSafe course offers training in positioning, speed and observation and is intended for young people who have passed their compulsory basic training test.

Courses will be held at the Heads of the Valleys Training centre at Gilwern on Saturday 14th February and Caldicot Leisure Centre on Saturday 14th March. 

Monmouthshire's cabinet member with responsibility for road safety, Cllr Bryan Jones said: "Motorcyclists are 55 times more likely than car drivers to be killed or seriously hurt in a collision so the RideSafe course is a vital step for young motorcyclists who wish to travel safely and responsibly".
