In order for children to learn how to travel safely on their bicycles, traffic education is now an integral part of the primary school curriculum. The bicycle test is completed in 4th class. The Youth Traffic School (JVS) in Wuhlheide offers an opportunity to prepare for the practical part of this examination. Teachers, the Road Safety Team of Sections 65 and 66 of the Berlin Police and the JVS team work hand in hand. The offer is aimed primarily at school classes in year 4, who can prepare for the practical cycling test here under expert guidance.
For children from 4 years of age, the Youth Traffic School offers the courses “It´s busy on the road” and “Safety through visibility”. Over 60´s can be accommodated in the grounds of the Youth Traffic School under the slogan “Fit for pedelec 25?” Get to know the e-bike. There will also be open driving for all age groups on predetermined dates. In addition, regular training courses by the cooperation partner ADAC are on the program.
In addition to “classic” bicycles, the well-equipped fleet of vehicles of the Youth Traffic School has scooters, rollers and special bikes, go-karts and e-bikes (Pedelec 25).
