Not all motorcycle training schools are the same, so how do you know which one to choose?
You could try asking a friend, or ‘googling it’, but that won’t tell you much about the quality of the training, or the way the business is run.
However, if you look for an MCIAC ‘accredited’ school you will know that all the checks have been done for you!
An MCIAC ‘accredited’ school:
- Will offer good customer service
- Is safe and professional
- Guarantees clean quality kit and a choice of automatic or geared bikes
- Ensures you get the right length of time on the road and are taught with the correct staff/pupil ratios
- Will ask for your feedback at the end of your training through a survey and will reward your efforts with a free ticket to Motorcycle Live (if you are training for a license or a CBT)
Meet strict quality criteria are checked every single year
What’s the history behind MCIAC?
MCIAC stands for Motorcycle Industry Accreditation Centre and it was established in 2013. There are now around 100 sites now either accredited, or close to achieving accreditation.
It was introduced initially so that high quality schools had a way of proving that they run high quality businesses and offer a high standard of training. In other words, they wanted a way to stand out from the crowd!
Why have I not heard of it before?
Although MCIAC was set up nearly 4 years ago, we have waited until now to tell riders, in order to build up a critical number of schools across the UK.
