National Cycle Training - 'Bikeability'

Road safety cycle training is available for anyone aged 10 years and older in Jersey. There are 3 options available for cyclists who want to receive training.

Off road courses

The first and most basic courses are 'off road' courses that are run at many primary schools by parent volunteers who are trained by the Road Safety Officer. They follow the pattern of the old 'cycling proficiency' courses. The courses offer practical basic cycle safety training such as:

  • dealing with T junctions
  • overtaking parked cars
  • basic man"uvres at roundabouts
  • a written theory test

Bikeability level 2

The second option is a level 2 Bikeability course which follows the National Standard of cycling instruction. These courses are carried out 'on road' under the supervision of the Road Safety Officer. A child must be at least 10 years old to attend a level 2 course but there is no upper age limit. The course trains cyclists in basic road craft at a variety of junctions and builds confidence when riding in traffic.

Bikeability level 3

This is the final level, which is more advanced and trains cyclists who want to ride in commuter traffic and therefore more complex traffic situations. Training takes place in St Helier. Younger, less experienced cyclists would be expected to attend a level 2 course before attending level 3. More experienced adult cyclists can attend a level 3 course without needing to complete level 2.

An assessment is carried out prior to level 2 and 3 courses to make sure the cyclist can cope with the course.

Compulsory basic training for moped riders

If you want to ride a 49cc moped on the road in Jersey and you don't already hold a full licence to ride one, you are legally required to apply for a provisional licence from your parish hall. You will also need to book and pass a compulsory basic training course with the Jersey School of Motorcycling before you ride on the road.

You can find out more about compulsory basic training for moped riders on the States of Jersey website.
