This is a brief insight into what we can offer you so that you can become a motorcycle instructor.

Whether you want to be a down-trained instructor working within an established school, are looking for a career change or if you are looking to set up a new business, 1066 motorcycle instructor training can help you fulfil your ambitions! The rewards are very satisfying; from issuing your first CBT certificate to your last full test pass.

You will need to learn to adapt your instruction to suit a range of pupils from a rider who has been riding for years but has not taken a test to a complete novice who has always wanted to ride but is very nervous. You will need to be able to identify problems with riding techniques and explain ways of correcting them. The quality of your instruction and delivering it with confidence are of key importance – taking a 16 year old on the road for the first time is a huge responsibility!

Whatever your reason for wanting to be an instructor, you can feel confident that the training you receive from us is technically correct and works well in real life situations.

Effective Motorcycle Instructor courses take time, unfortunately there are no short cuts.
Our courses last two weeks (full time), 6 days a week and are based on theory and practical teaching methods as well as your own personal riding techniques. We also offer work placements to help you hone your skills.

Bike sales are increasing, middle age riders are wanting to get back on their bikes and there is an abundance of young riders wanting to do CBT’s. Also, looming fast is the new motorcycle laws for EC so there has never been a better time to become an instructor.

Embracing the rain, training carries on!

Who are 1066 motorcycle training?

“Hi I am Neil, owner of the 1066 Motorcycle Training and 1066 Moto (car division). I first started training on a part time basis at the age of 19! This was before the introduction of CBT when it used to be part 1 training. My profession by trade is a horologist, (clock maker) and I specialised in large clocks, The Great Clock (Big Ben) and the clock at the Royal Court of Justice and the Star Pier Clock in Hong Kong, just to name a few. After the birth of my son and a family trip to Australia, the thought of going back to doing 10 hours a day and then being stuck on the M25 for hours wasn’t appealing! So I decided a career change to full time motorcycle instructor would offer a better way of life!

So with no real money behind me, I brought a cheap Kawasaki KE125 and took over the payments of my mates Yamaha Thunder cat. I started CBT training in a school car park and off we went! Now the monster is taking over with over 30 bikes and our own off road training venue. The concept is still the same, good quality training at a sensible price, not teaching people to pass their test but to ride competently in a busy road environment. Once they can do that, passing the test is easy!

Twenty years on “do I still enjoy training?” No, I love it!

I still get the buzz when people pass their test.

I hope you get the buzz!

We give an overview and introduction to the course with simple instruction tasks, we have a little look at your riding then at the end of the day I sit down with each instructor and have a 1 to 1 going over the various tasks we have done.
