Scooter Safety Training

TEL: 020 3002 0350

Faster and more fun than walking, safer and cheaper than riding a bike.  It's no wonder that scooters are now one of the most common types of transport for children aged 4 to 10 years. However, with an increase in usage comes an increase in accidents.

For2Feet were one of the first organisations in the UK to create a unique training program aimed at reducing the number of scooter accidents.

Training is designed for children in years 1 to 2.  The years in which parents allow their children to ride ahead and out of direct parental control.

The main causes of child scooter accidents are used to form the basis of our training.  So we teach them the following information:

  • How to check their scooter is safe
  • What to do when they get tired
  • How to slow down, stop and deal with an emergency situation
  • Correct pavement use and etiquette
  • Common pavement dangers and hazards 
  • How to spot cars reversing from driveways
  • Dealing with junctions and parked cars when using a scooter.

All this information has been carefully crafted into an active playground and roadside training program with the expert help of teachers and training professionals.   

Training is lively and fun with the majority of training taking place on the roads and pavements where the children will be scooting to school.  There is no better way to prepare them for safe independent scooter journeys to school.  They finish their training safer, smarter and more confident scooter riders.

All our training fits perfectly with initiatives required for schools to complete their Modeshift STARS accreditated School Travel Plans.
