It will be in two parts, on Saturday between 10am and 4pm there will be a theory presentation and an assessed ride on Sunday between 9am and noon or 1pm and 4pm.

The course is available to anyone who rides a 250cc-plus motorbike. Places will cost £20.

Police Constable Chris Smith, BikeSafe co-ordinator, said: “Even the most experienced bikers could learn something on the BikeSafe course that may one day save their life.

“This course provides motorcyclists with a great opportunity to gain advice and tips on areas including cornering, overtaking, positioning and hazard perception.
