The Motorcycle Industry Association (MCIA) is delighted to announce that the Government’s Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) is officially endorsing the Motorcycle Industry Accreditation Centre’s (MCIAC’s) ATB managers’ course. This follows a formal process of evaluation.
Karen Cole, Director of Safety and Training at the Motorcycle Industry Association, set up MCIAC over 4 years ago, during which time nearly 100 sites have gained or are close to gaining accreditation. She explained:
“The DVSA has always been sympathetic to the aims of MCIAC, but it was vital that we had an official endorsement gained through evaluation. We are delighted that we now have this and that we have exceeded expectations."
DVSA's Head of Rider Policy Mark Winn added:
“The MCIAC Quality Assured Award for ATB Owners will help riders identify training schools that provide quality training and customer service. The programme helps raise professional business and customer care standards within the motorcycle training industry.
“DVSA plays an important role in regulating and quality assuring motorcycle trainers. The MCIAC quality award builds on this and encourages and supports ATBs to improve their standards. By working together we can enable Safer Riders, Safer Vehicles and Safer Journeys for all.”
To maintain the DVSA’s endorsement, MCIAC will be subject to annual reviews, with a full re-evaluation every four years.
