Any Instructors on here?

Post by benp1992 » Fri Mar 24, 2017 9:09 am

Morning all,

Is there any motorcycle instructors on this forum? Would you be able to give me a rough rate a motorcycle instructor would earn? I know a lot depends on the company and area. However i am coming out of the RAF and looking at becoming a instructor using my resettlement as its something i have thought about doing for a while.So just trying to build up a picture on whether it will provide enough pay once i come out of the RAF.

Did you have to fork out for training and a qualification before you became an instructor, and if so how much? Something I thought of when I retired, but as you mentioned, the pay looks pretty poor.

My mate does it, started off doing CBT down training, he's now fully qualified but it's only about 100 quid a day.

My cousin had his car instructor ticket but has let it laps as he struggled to make any money in our area but just recently he looked into getting his bike instructor qualifications and he said that the bike training is still unregulated but it's about to become regulated (his words not mine), so I suspect this will effect the training you'll need.

No, the training for initial CBT stuff can be done by the training school , if they are inclined to
Do so and to be honest they should be grateful for your willingness to train , the further training for direct access was my own cost , but doesn't have to be , good luck if you do it , I packed in because it interfered with my bike riding
