The Isle of Wight is hosting a motorcycle safety course to prevent an increase in crashes.
The Council's Better Riding course involves theory and practical training aimed at all levels of experience.
In the last three years, 76 motorcyclists have been killed or injured on the Island's roads.
The course helps motorcyclists ride defensively and prepare for hazards on the road.
A variety of techniques will be covered including advanced riding skills, overtaking, braking and filtering as well as basic first aid.
Based at Sandown Fire Station on Thursday evenings.
