What are the advantages
of certified programmes?

Certified programmes ensure that:

the rider receives the level of training they require to ensure that they enjoy their motorcycling safely

the training provider has their training offer reviewed on a regular basis

the improvement of safety is the main objective of the course offered

the offer is a serious one and stands for a modern method of adult education

trainers are sufficiently qualified and are obligated to undertake regular additional training

How does the label
work in practice?

Requests for applications should be submitted to the German Road Safety Council (DVR) by the training provider. The DVR provides a list of criteria as well as an application form, which must be completed in English or German and sent back to the DVR.

Documents are forwarded to the independent Review Committee so that they can provide their expert opinion and make an initial assessment of the applicant’s programme. If this first assessment is positive, independent experts take part in a practical rider training session on site to check if the training offer meets the high-quality criteria in terms of programme content, qualification of trainers, training methodology and quality assurance.

The analysis of the post-license training programme is carried out in an open and transparent manner by independent experts. This allows us to ensure that the training is delivered in a fully-fledged manner. Annual on-the-spot inspections are carried out by the DVR in order to ensure that the training programme continues to be delivered to a high standard.

The costs of examining the training courses must be covered by the training provider. Cost estimates are provided on request. The label is granted for a period of 4 years (renewable).
