The Motorcycle Training Industry is regulated by the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), and there are strict rules associated with motorcycle training.
The licensing of motorcyclists is also quite a complicated matter with rules relating to the age, name, size and power of motorcycles.
Essentially there are three stages of qualification to become a fully qualified motorcycle instructor.
Down trained (We can offer this option as a Learn as you Earn)
Trained and assessed by a qualified instructor and permitted to train at Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) level only.
Attended the DVSA centre at Cardington and passed a rigorous two day assessment. This permits you to train at CBT level and down train other new instructors.
*2 This is the minimum qualification to hold an Approved Training Body Status (ATB).
Already CBT1C (cannot progress directly to DAS) and attended DSA Centre at Cardington and passed a further half-day assessment. This permits you to train DAS in addition to CBT.
*1 Currently there is no Qualification in respect of teaching new riders on 125cc machines post CBT. To work with RJH you would need at the very least to be down trained and assessed by us to conduct this type of training.
*2 This is the minimum qualification required to hold an Approved Training Body Status (ATB). This qualification is required prior to qualification to conduct Direct Access (DAS) Courses.
At the various stages of qualification you will be entitled to apply for a certificate from the DVSA. Unlike an approved Driving Instructor who holds a licence to train anywhere your certificate will be associated with an approved training body like RJH Rider Training.
*3 You are not restricted as to whom you can work for but each time you change you must apply for a new certificate which will state on it the ATB with whom you are allowed to train. The maximum number of ATBs you can train with at any one time is two.
