Instructor Academy


If you’re looking for a new and exciting career, are a good communicator, people person and can you ride a motorbike bike well, then why not train to become a motorcycling instructor? You’ll be your own boss in charge of your own schedule, enjoy a good rate of pay and have the freedom to impart your knowledge in your own way. You will also meet lots of new and interesting people from all walks of life, have a varied working day as no two days are the same, and enhance your own bike riding skills. And once qualified, you may have the option to join the WLMT team or choose where you’d like to work.

This instructor training course has been designed and delivered by an ex-DVSA motorcycle examiner. This has enabled all our trainees to have a unique insight and practice of a higher standard of motorcycle instruction techniques, as well as that of the National Standard for Riding. We challenge you to find a course at this level, anywhere!

We offer a focused and structured course over a minimum eight-week period in order to maximise your learning and your chances of becoming a fully qualified motorcycle instructor. This course could be shorter, based on your ability and competence. And if you are progressing quickly through the course, we will not hold you back but will continue to work at your own pace.

Our instructor training course aims to mirror the high standard training courses provided by the DVSA for L (learner) Test examiners. We have the exclusive benefit of a highly qualified former DVSA examiner who will train with you. The course will include on site training with live students, risk management, self-directed learning and customer service. You will be supervised at all times whilst on site so feedback is immediate which will in turn enhance your learning experience. By the end of the course you should be ready to attend the DVSA CBTC1 assessment which we will also book for you.

Should you meet the WLMT standard and want to pursue your education to become a DAS instructor, we have designed a training course to prepare you for the DAS assessment. We offer the opportunity to gain full-time employment to qualified CBTC1 or DAS instructors who have followed our training and successfully gained their certification.


CBTC1 course fee: Details provided upon application.

DAS assessment training course: £500
