COVID-19 Update - December 2020

Your safety and well-being is of the utmost importance to us at BMW Rider Training. Rest assured, we are closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and taking precautionary measures in line with the UK Government advice to make sure our students and staff are safe.

Tiered Restrictions from 2nd December 2020

As we are sure you are aware, the UK Government has announced a system of tiered restrictions across England, with a range of measures for each county/area dependent on rising or falling case numbers of the virus.

  • If you are unsure about which Tier you are in, you can find this using the GOV.UK postcode checker >>here<<
  • >>Click here<< to see some helpful posters which clearly outline what can or cannot be done in your local area

How is motorcycle training affected?

Our industry governing body, the DVSA (Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency) have confirmed that training and tests can resume in all Tiers from Thursday 3rd December.

We will be rescheduling all customers booked at the earliest possible opportunity, if you have an open booking with us, please keep an eye out for our update emails over the coming days. If you have a booking but have not yet heard from us, please do get in touch here.

I haven't booked yet, how soon will I be able to start my course?

We can't wait to get back on the road, riding and teaching with our students again, and we look forward to seeing you!

To speed the process along, please be sure to have your Motorcycle Theory Test certificate ready when booking. If you don't have this yet, we'd recommend booking this as soon as possible to avoid delays. You can do this >>here<<

Please do be aware that training and testing have been extremely disrupted over the past 6 months and so there may be a slightly longer wait time than usual. We're so sorry about that!

Sadly much of this is out of our hands, as it is due to a large number of students whose courses were rescheduled due to test centre closures throughout the lockdown period, and restricted test numbers once centres did reopen.

We are working hard on this, to ensure you don't have to wait too long, but we really appreciate your patience during this difficult and frustrating time.

If you'd like to join our waiting list, you can do so by sending us a message here.


If you have any questions at all, reach out to us - we'd be happy to help!

Kind regards,

Ian & the BMW Rider Training team
