'Safe to Ride' Campaign

NMDA promotes “Safe to Ride” campaign for motorcycle dealers

With recent changes to tiering systems and local lockdowns, NMDA continues to support its members with the ‘Safe to Ride’ campaign promoting the use of motorcycles as an ideal alternative to public transport.

Powered Two Wheelers (PTWs) are not only a great way to keep ‘COVID safe’, they offer the public much more:

  • Safe to ride: social distancing and 'face coverings' are always required
  • Affordable ownership with very low running costs
  • Quicker journey times: avoid traffic jams*
  • Parking made easy and often free
  • Low emissions combined with incredible fuel economy
  • Freedom and fun

*Don’t forget that in some cities and towns, PTWs are permitted to use bus Lanes. Check with your local authority before setting out.

It could not be easier to get onto a PTW and out on the road. With just a single day of CBT Training, anyone from the age of 16 (with at least a provisional license) can be out and riding at least a 50cc/4kw moped. To find your nearest training school visit:

Please remember PTWs are “Safe to Ride” but we all still need to ride safe. Under current regulations helmets are compulsory BUT protective jackets, gloves and footwear and ALWAYS advised.
