I did mine 11years ago and instructed for 5 years. I had to do 3 weeks unpaid ( that was a commitment thing) I had to learn all current aspects of motorcycling law IE who needs a CBT, MOT requirements, learner laws, Highway code. I was then put through bike training which was at first hours and hours of observed riding and basicly bought up to scratch. They then tought me how to ride with a pupil, safe distances etc so I wouldn't unnerve them by riding to close. I had to do several rides where I had to provide a running commentary with another instuctor so he could make sure I was being as observant as i could be. Most of the rest of the training was being put through the same course they would give a novice rider so that I learned the test routes and the course schedule. It also gave me a better understanding of what it was like to be back on L plates. And they were a lot stricter on mock tests with us, we were allowed next to no mistakes. All this was done and monitored through (what is now) the DSA Almost wish I had kept currant.

I do when the test driving work gets a bit slow. I wouldn't mind doing a bit of testing for the local papers etc. I did enjoy instructing, I found ladies easier to teach as thier not so cocky (no pun intended) as the young lads or men. The Born agains could be hard work sometimes, "Yes mate I know what to do I used to have a Proper Triumph ya know in 1965....not like these new ones, thier not proper ones ya know!" "Yes, but have you ridden anything over 50bhp with modern tyres and disc brakes?" "Erm...I sat on a Honda CBR when they first came out...." "Shut up and lisen then!" Always was a people person!
