The European Association of Motorcycle Manufacturers (ACEM – Association des Constructeurs Européens de Motocycles) announced the new European Training Quality Label at its 12th annual conference ‘The Safe Ride to the Future’.

The label will recognise high quality post-licence training programmes throughout Europe. The first to receive the certification was a training scheme by the Royal Dutch Motorcycle Federation.

Stephan Schaller, President of ACEM and BMW Motorrad, said:

“ACEM members manufacture some of the most advanced motorcycles and mopeds in the world. But it is also important that motorcyclists have good riding skills and a responsible attitude on the road. This is precisely why we are partnering with the German Road Safety Council to promote the best post-licence training programmes across Europe”.

While no British training schools have yet to be awarded the recognition, last month Motorcycle Scotland became the first off-road training school in the UK to be fully endorsed by the government.
