The Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) is considering making changes to the standards and compliance checks for motorcycle trainers.

The Agency wants to see checks more closely linked to the ‘National standard for driver and rider training’ to bring monitoring in line with the changes introduced for approved driving instructors on 7 April 2014.

During the summer (2014), DVSA will carrying out a small trial with approved training bodies and instructors in Bedfordshire, South Yorkshire, the West Midlands and surrounding areas.

Updates with regard to the progress of the trial, its outcome and any changes that could be introduced, will be published later in the year.
