Motorcycle Instructor Training
What Does Instructor Training Consist Of?
This is a brief insight into what we can offer you so that you can become a motorcycle instructor.
Whether you want to be a down-trained instructor working within an established school, are looking for a career change or if you are looking to set up a new business, 1066 motorcycle instructor training can help you fulfil your ambitions! The rewards are very satisfying; from issuing your first CBT certificate to your last full test pass.
You will need to learn to adapt your instruction to suit a range of pupils from a rider who has been riding for years but has not taken a test, to a complete novice who has always wanted to ride but is very nervous. You will need to be able to identify problems with riding techniques and explain ways of correcting them. The quality of your instruction and delivering it with confidence are of key importance – taking a 16 year old on the road for the first time is a huge responsibility!
Whatever your reason for wanting to be an instructor, you can feel confident that the training you receive from us is technically correct and works well in real life situations.
Effective motorcycle instructor courses take time, unfortunately there are no short cuts.
Our courses last two weeks (full time), 6 days a week and are based on theory and practical teaching methods, as well as your own personal riding techniques. We also offer work placements to help you hone your skills.
Bike sales are increasing, middle age riders are wanting to get back on their bikes and there is an abundance of young riders wanting to do CBT’s. There has never been a better time to become an instructor!

Training for the 2009 off road training exercises
Myself and Kevin, my senior instructor will undertake all of your training. We have undertaken many instructors who have gone on to run successful schools of their own.
Instructor Experience Day
We run an experience day, quite simply, you spend a day with a group of other potential instructors and we talk about becoming an instructor, work possibilities, or even how to set up your own school.
We give an overview and introduction to the course with simple instruction tasks, we have a little look at your riding then at the end of the day I sit down with each instructor and have a 1 to 1 going over the various tasks we have done.
The advantage is that there’s only a small outlay, so you can make sure this is what you want to do and you are happy with what we offer.
The cost is £75.00 (including lunch!)
When you carry on to the Instructor full course your £75.00 is discounted off the total price.
1 day Instructor Experience Day: £75
