We offer an introductory course to start your career as an Instructor in Motorcycle Training. You will be given all the relevant information that you need to teach, for each lesson conducted throughout a CBT course, lesson delivery guidance and practice, and also some ‘On Road Training’ in the art of instruction via the radio when teaching.

This is a five day course and is a good opportunity to see if motorcycle training is for you.

This is a far more comprehensive course to ensure you have all the necessary skills required to be a qualified instructor. You will get a dedicated Instructor for your instructor training which is bespoke to your needs.

As a Down-Trained Instructor you can conduct CBT courses and also train students to ride on the road on a motorcycle up to 125cc. During the course we will give you guidance in methods of instruction, lesson planning, teaching skills and various method deliveries for different riding criteria.

This is a 10 day course and can be done in two weeks or to suit your diary.

This qualification is given to you by the ATB who has allowed to to teach customers for them, you to hold a CBT1 certificate as a CBT Down Trained Instructor.

Once you have completed the Down-Trained Instructor course or if you already hold a Down-Trained Certificate your next step is to complete the CBT 2 day assessment at Cardington (the DVSA HQ for Training and Development).

In our ten day preparation course, we provide you with the necessary information to be able to assess and down-train a trainee instructor. You must master the skills to enable you to give feedback and advice on lesson delivery and provide coaching to improve another instructor’s ability. You must demonstrate a high standard of teaching.

You will hold a CBT1C certificate after passing the two day assessment at Cardington.

The final step to become a fully qualified instructor is to complete the DAS (Direct Access Scheme) Course so that you can teach new motorcyclists at all levels from CBT to learning on a larger motorcycle in preparation to passing their motorbike test.

We deliver a comprehensive five day DAS Instructor course to you. This is long enough for you to develop an understanding of the different lessons required to be taught when training someone on a larger machine. You must learn how to introduce the larger motorcycle, conduct fault analysis and give remedial action during off road manoeuvres and deliver thorough on road riding lessons in readiness to pass this course.
