Riders offered parking discount in Kensington and Chelsea

Riders who participate in advanced rider training schemes are being offered discounted parking in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

The initiative is part of borough-wide plans to encourage resident motorcyclists to park in motorcycle bays – rather than between cars where bikes are more vulnerable to being damaged.

The 17% parking discount is being afforded to any rider who has completed one of the following courses:

  • BikeSafe London
  • British Motorcyclists Federation’s Blue Riband Rider Award
  • RoSPA’s Advanced Motorcycle Training

The borough is also offering an additional reduced permit to riders of electric motorbikes.

Motorcycle permits available in Kensington and Chelsea:

  • Standard motorcycle permit – allows parking in residents’ motorcycle bays only. These bays are identified with the words ‘M/C Permits Only’ painted on the road. This permit is free of charge.
  • Combined motorcycle permit – allows parking in both residents’ car and motorcycle bays. This permit costs £112 per annum or £93 to holders of advanced rider training certificates.
  • Combined electric motorcycle permit – allows parking in both residents’ car and motorcycle bays. This permit costs £84 per annum or £70 to holders of advanced rider training certificates.
