The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) and Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) have merged to form the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).
You can apply to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) to become a DVSA assessed compulsory basic training (CBT) motorcycle instructor.
CBT is a training course that most learner motorcycle and moped riders must take before riding on the road.
To become a DVSA assessed CBT motorcycle instructor you must:
- be 21 or older
- have a Great Britain or Northern Ireland driving licence
- have had a full category A2 or A motorcycle licence for at least 3 years
You’ll have to take a 2-day assessment at the DVSA’s training and development centre in Cardington, Bedfordshire.
When you qualify
When you pass you must work for a motorcycle approved training body (ATB) to be able to:
- provide the CBT course to learner riders
- train up to 10 instructors at the ATB to also deliver CBT courses (this is known as ‘down-training’)
- apply to become a direct access scheme instructor
