Information for young moped riders

Young_moped

Medway Council’s Youth Services Team is working with Orbit Training to provide road safety information and to show young moped riders how to maintain and look after their machines. The project is designed to combat the number of young riders who are involved in accidents, where the rider has been riding for less than two years.

Medway’s Road Safety Team, Kent Fire & Rescue Service and Kent Police are working together to show young people how to maintain mopeds, keep them legal, discuss practical safe riding advice and the use of protective clothing.

PC Chris King, from Kent Police’s motorcycle team, said: “Riders’ parents often claim to be unaware of the licence restrictions but this is not a reasonable defence. This information is readily available when applying for the provisional licence and is explained as part of Compulsory Basic Training.”
