As with any industry there are varying standards of motorcycle training providers but how do you know who is offering high quality training?  

When it comes to motorcycle training it is vital that the trainer you choose is committed to delivering high quality training and that your safety is their priority.  This is where MCIA RIDE comes in; all MCIA RIDE Industry Approved training schools provide proof that they are meeting the DVSA’s requirements, copies of public and professional insurances, collect customer feedback and adhere to a Code of Professional Practice which is based on the 5 pillars below: 

Management - MCIA RIDE Industry Approved training schools will be appropriately managed to ensure that DVSA requirements are met at all times..  
Quality - All training sites, facilities and equipment conform to legal and regulatory requirements, are checked before being used and are of an appropriate standard. 
Safety - Training sites (including classroom facilities) are safe for training to be delivered
Training - A course outline for each type of course delivered should be held by the school.  
Personal Behaviours – customers are treated in a professional manner

Post-Test Training

Do you have a motorcycle licence but are coming back to riding after a break or are looking for any other post-test training?  

Becoming a more skilled, safer motorcyclist means committing to regular, ongoing, post-test training. MCIA RIDE recommends that all riders take some form of extra training. Riding experience is important in building competence and confidence, but it can also encourage bad habits. Through formal post-test training these can be identified and addressed. Find out more
