I have been riding since 1985 and instructing from 1991. The reason for starting to teach motorcycling was to enable learner riders to be safe and in control. My initial training was extremely poor and as I started on the path as an instructor and trainer in other fields, I realised how inadequate my motorcycle training was. As a result, I have structured and devised motorcycle training programmes from CBT through to Advanced Riding techniques to ensure all our trainees receive the best guidance from our highly trained and professional instructors.
Unlike many other training schools who say they are passionate about bikes, our passion is training. This ensures you have quality structured tuition at every level; this is the foundation to your future and a new rider’s life depends on the quality of tuition they first undertake.
My motorcycle qualifications include the DSA Certified CBT & DAS Instructor, ERS Instructor, RPMT registered, RoSPA gold certificate holder, RoSPA Diploma, IAM certificate holder Red Green & Blue badge, IAM Skills Day Instructor on Track and Advanced Riding Instructor
Other areas of instruction include Military instructor for 12 years in various fields, HGV Instructor, Car Instructor, Vehicle Inspector and Trainer, Servicing Technician, NEBS Business & Management certificates and CPC in Haulage & Fleet management (National and International).
I have been riding motorbikes since 1974 and there is no substitute for the benefits and the freedom that it brings. There is a great feeling of independence when you ride a bike, especially if you like to travel and take on the challenge of riding in Europe. Some people say that to experience a ride in a convertible along the Mediterranean coastline is a thrill of a lifetime!!! Well why not go for the ultimate and do it on your motorbike? Get out there and live the dream.
I would feel a little selfish if I couldn’t put something back into a hobby that has given me so much fun, freedom and enjoyment over the years; that`s why I became an instructor. I wanted other people to experience those same feelings and benefits.
My background is in teaching and education and I have been awarded the following qualifications – Police Advanced Driver, Method of Instruction Course, Military Instructor, First Aid Instructor, Karate Instructor, Skiing Instructor and an Adventure Training Instructor.
The motorbike qualifications I have achieved help me to provide high quality instruction to my pupils; IAM Advanced Rider, RoSPA Advanced Rider, DSA Approved CBT & DAS Instructor, Advanced Training Instructor and Track Training Instructor.
I first slung my leg over a motorbike when I was 14 and used to annoy the local farmer riding a James 125cc two stroke around his field in 1969. I then ventured into the Mod phase and had a Lambretta Li150 until I joined the Royal Navy.
After leaving the Royal Navy I spent 25 years in IT and Telecoms in a training role and was Head of Learning and Development for technical skills for the European region before becoming a full time motorcycle instructor.
My qualifications include a Certificate in Consultative Skills, Diploma in Instructional Technique for Training Officers, DSA qualified DAS Motorcycle Instructor, IAM Advanced Motorcycle, ROSPA Advanced Motorcyclist, ERS Riding Certificate and Advanced Riding Instructor
Personally speaking, the best aspect of being an instructor is the huge satisfaction in helping people achieve their dream.
I have been riding since 1989 and teaching since 1994. I have always loved motorcycling and the pure freedom that it gives you. As you need 100% concentration when riding, it helps me to forget any worries that I might have and is a perfect release from the day-to-day routine.
As a motorcycle instructor with a vast amount of experience, I can adapt different learning theories to an individual’s needs. This helps to maximise the learner rider’s experience and quickly advance their ability and capability. I still get a buzz after all these years of training, whether it is for CBT or to test standard or beyond. Seeing a rider flourish from your tuition is an amazing sense of achievement.
My riding qualifications include CBT1C, DAS, RoSPA Gold, and considerable experience in training individuals to become Motorcycle Instructors. Other qualifications include BSc Teaching and Assessing for NHS pre and post registration Nurses, Sign off Mentor for NHS pre and post registration and Nurses and Emergency Vehicle Driving course.
I have been riding motorcycles from a very early age and passed my motorcycle test in 1997. Motorcycling appeals to me because I love the freedom and experience of riding on the open road. There is also the camaraderie that you experience with other motorcyclists; wherever you go, other motorcyclists will acknowledge you and make you feel welcome.
I thoroughly enjoy being a Motorcycle Instructor; I get a lot of satisfaction from using my experience to train students to a standard of riding that will not only get them through their test successfully but will also keep them and others safe on the roads.
I have received the highest standard of training available here at RMT and thanks to a comprehensive programme of training. I am qualified and approved as a DSA Certified Instructor.
I am also qualified as an Electronics Technician for TV, Computer and Radios and have trained people in this field. I moved to the IT industry and become Microsoft Certified Computer Server and Network Security Specialist and an IT trainer. My management roles within IT enabled me to train staff and mentor them to the standards required within the industry. It is these same skills that I apply to my role as a Motorcycle Instructor. I am very fortunate that I am able to do a job that I really love and enjoy.
I started riding off road aged 14. My first road bike was a BSA 250 in 1964 at the age 16 years old. My passion is any two wheeler including vintage, classic and modern motorbikes.
At the time of writing, I currently own eight motorcycles and regularly tour abroad with friends. Motorcycle training is challenging but ultimately very satisfying.
My Instructor qualifications are DSA Direct Access Scheme Instructor, CBT Instructor, RoSPA advanced motorcyclist, ERS Instructor and IAM advanced car driver.
My other qualifications are high school teacher and workshop engineering (theory and practice).
I’ve been riding bikes since 1997 and, in fact, passed my test with RMT Motorcycle Training, not long after Simon started the business. The main reason for starting riding was to ease my daily commute through Birmingham, but even though I don’t do that journey now, I still wouldn’t give up my bike.
Having completed the Advanced Riding qualifications, the next logical step was to put something back and help others to gain the enjoyment and freedom I enjoyed. Everyone doing the CBT/DAS training is learning a skill and the thrill and enjoyment on the customers faces at the end of a day is very satisfying; even more so when they get their full licence.
My biking and other training qualifications include CBT/DAS Approved Instructor, IAM observer (cars and motorbikes), RYA Senior Sailing/Racing Instructor, RYA Windsurfing Instructor and PADI Divemaster.
Although I have the least riding experience out of the team and only been riding since 2002, I have undergone a vast amount of training both to become an Instructor and an Advanced Rider. The guidance I have received from RMT to become an Instructor has been outstanding.
RMT have an extremely high standard and as I continue to improve my own development under their tuition, I enjoy the challenge of crafting my student’s skills to a higher level, so that they can ride safely on today’s busy roads. I don’t see myself as a biker when I have students with me but rather a teacher or educator.
My qualifications include DSA Certified CBT and DAS instructor and I am also an Advanced Rider.
I passed my test with RMT in 2003 when I was 36 years old. Three years later I trained to be an Instructor and now instruct on behalf of RMT. It seemed to me to be an obvious step to take since I had spent the last 20 years or more in a teaching and training capacity.
Although it’s a job, it is really an extension to my hobby plus I’m doing something that I’m passionate about, which is teaching. For me, the biggest joy isn’t riding through the mountain roads of North Wales using Advance Riding skills, it’s the pleasure of watching beginner and novice riders become proficient and confident motorcyclists.
I am a DSA Certified Instructor and also a RoSPA Certificate Advanced Rider too. These skills combined help me to deliver quality instruction to my students.
I have been riding for many years and passed my bike test in 1982; I rode a bike before I even thought about driving cars. I particularly enjoy the freedom of the open road and the thrill and excitement you get from riding. I am an Advanced Motorcyclist, hold an ERS certificate and have passed the IAM riding test. I continue to do further training to develop my own skills on the road.
My motorcycling career took me into club racing and I have raced in a National and International capacity, I have competed at the North West 200 in Ireland and the gruelling TT circuit in the Manx GP and on the Continent in France.
Due to my passion in racing, I now teach on the track. I want to develop all my students to a higher level, namely improving their safety. For me, there is no better feeling than watching people advance and keep improving as they put into practice the skills that we teach.
I have had a bike licence since 1996 and have an absolute passion for motorcycling. It gives me a sense of freedom that no other sport gives me; I am happy that I have been given the opportunity to join a fantastic group of highly qualified individuals to train as an Instructor.
Going through the Methods of Instruction and training techniques over the past few months has opened my eyes to the world of teaching. I love the fact that I am able to help others realise the passion for themselves.
