Road Safety

Dragon Rider Cymru

Dragon Rider Cymru is the new motorcycle rider training course supported by the Driving Standards Agency Enhanced Rider Scheme and Thunder road Motorcycles of South Wales.

The Road Safety Teams from the Counties of Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire Swansea and Neath Port Talbot, 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 DSA Register of Post Test Motorcycle Instructors.

The courses are held on weekends and are one day in duration. The courses in Pembrokeshire will consist of a morning classroom based session that takes place at Fire and Rescue Station HQ in Haverfordwest; other courses within the region take place in Carmarthen, Swansea and Neath Port Talbot.

The afternoon will be road based, using a variety of roads throughout the 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.

The course is subsidised by the Welsh Government and is free to all residents of Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire

How much does the course cost?

Thanks to Road Safety Grant funding from Welsh Government the course is FREE of charge to residents of Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire.
