Level 1 cycle training
Suitable for ages 7-8.
This course helps cyclists of 7+ years to practice the basics of balance, control, signalling and observation in a safe off-road setting.
Towards the end of the course, each child will be assessed as to whether they meet the required standard.
All participating children will be presented with a certificate of completion.
The instructor in conjunction with their school can request student training and assessment materials from their local road safety staff whenever they wish to train.
Children can be trained by teachers, classroom assistants, parent-helpers or others and road safety staff will come into school/group to train an instructor.
A school or group is responsible for CRB checking of its instructors.
Once an instructor has been trained by road safety staff, the school/group can plan and run Level 1 off-road basic cycling courses at its convenience.
