The National Standard
- Level 1 - conducted in a controlled environment away from roads and traffic. Basic cycle control skills including, starting and pedalling, stopping, manoeuvring, signalling and using gears.
- Level 2 - On-road training for those who have completed Level 1 and are ready to progress; it gives real cycling experience and makes you feel safer and capable of dealing with traffic on short journeys
- Level 3 - Cyclists reaching the Level 3 standard will be able to deal with all types of road conditions and more complex situations. The course covers dealing with hazards, making ‘on-the-move’ risk assessments and planning routes for safer cycling.
The cost of training for adults varies from one area to another, depending on the subsidy available.
