Abstract

This report summarises the findings from an in-depth study undertaken during 2005 in order to obtain an understanding of how current motorcycle training operated, and to obtain views from training organisations and from 'umbrella' organisations on how training was being delivered and how it could be improved. Specifically the project objectives were to identify participants' views on the core training and skills required by motorcyclists and to investigate what was considered 'best' training practice. The report presents a view of motorcycle training that takes account of material obtained from a range of project tasks (interviews, surveys and observation), specific relevant EU projects, together with the team's knowledge of the general literature and research thinking on driver/motorcycle training, testing and licensing. The report discusses ways in which some of the issues in motorcycle safety might be addressed by means of training and related interventions. It makes suggestions for good practice when delivering training and also identifies some changes to the testing/training/licensing system that could be considered as ways of improving motorcycle safety.
