Motorcycle Industry Accreditation Centre (MCIAC)


Vocational Training to improve Motorcycle Safety through IMI Accredited Courses
Offered through the Motorcycle Industry Accreditation Centre (MCIAC) Motorcycle Industry Accreditation Centre

Advanced Riding Techniques are proud to announce that we have become one of the first in the UK to have our school accredited, and are the first school in the country to have our whole instructor team with individual qualifications. This will ensure that we have the very best standards available to the public.
Knowing how to choose a quality school previously has been very difficult to judge, until you turned up and realised that what you had seen on the website is not what was on offer!
With MCIAC you are guaranteed the highest level of standards in everything we do.

MCIAC, based at the headquarters of the Motorcycle Industry Association (MCI) in Coventry, was approved by IMI (Institute of Motor Industry) Awards to provide vocational training courses; one for ATB’s and one for Motorcycle Instructors.

MCIAC believe professionally recognised vocational qualifications are the future for those working in the rider training industry.  The Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) hinted at this when they began working with stakeholders on Instructor Registration in 2011/12. This was abandoned when legislative changes became unlikely, so this left only the voluntary route and this is where MCIAC courses come in.

It is important that accredited ATB’s and Instructors get the extra recognition that they deserve for investing time, effort and money in their business. It is also important to the industry as a whole to encourage more, well trained, safe riders on our busy roads and for the future of motorcycling.

Currently the DVSA only check standards once every 4 years on average and are mostly by appointment. MCIAC schools are quality checked every single year. With the MCIAC qualifications, all customers of accredited ATBs will be surveyed after their training, which will provide robust evidence based intelligence to ensure that our Quality Assured Award is only given to those ATB’s and Instructors who genuinely meet those standards 100% of the time.
