We carry out assessments and provide full training for those who wish to join us, so you can be confident you have the skills, knowledge and qualities to become a Derbyshire Blood Biker.
Most of our service is delivered by motorcycle. We want our riders among the best riders on the roads, so an advanced riding qualification is not only ‘good to have’, its a mandatory insurance requirement. To ensure that riders have maintained the skills they developed as part of an advanced riding group, we will carry out an assessment ride as a ‘first step’. We will look for safe, smooth riders, who apply the IPSGA system of motorcycle control.
Once you have demonstrated good standards of motorcycling, and road presence, we’ll take your application forward, through mandatory training (GMP) and familiarisation. Currently, there is no ‘advanced driving’ requirement for our cars.
All drivers, call handlers and fundraisers will follow the training program before you volunteer.
