COVID-19 Statement (Update 22 October 2020)

Regarding Motorcycles

In accordance with the latest revisions to RoSPA HQ and Government Guidance, motorcycle training is now allowed to resume providing all other restrictions are adhered to. The guidelines for how this will be implemented can be seen here: Covid-19 Motorcycle Training Guidelines

For the time being we will not be conducting Motorcycle Social Rides, as soon as this becomes possible, we will notify you here.

RoSPA are recommencing Motorcycle Testing from 15th June

Regarding Cars

Currently and until a safe and approved way of conducting Car Training is established, availability for Car Training is still very restricted. We are accepting new Car members but please note that it may be a number of months before a Tutor can be allocated. As soon as we are able to, we will aim to allocate new Associates to Tutors in date order from joining on a first come, first served basis, as far as geographical constraints allow. In the event that restrictions stay in place for some considerable time, an adjustment to new members’ joining dates will be made to reflect this.

The restrictions also include:

  • All New Associate Induction Days
  • All car tutoring
  • All social rides
  • Tutor Workshops

Committee Meetings are now being held online, and whilst it may also be possible to offer some online training in the future, we believe that the best way to become an advanced driver or rider is to practice the skills while accompanied by your Tutors. Clearly, we are unable to do this at the moment, but look forward to restrictions being lifted so that we can resume our normal activities.

Although we are unable to offer practical training to car drivers in the current climate, we are still open to all new applications. When we are able to resume training, we will aim to allocate new Associates to Tutors in date order, as far as geographical constraints allow. It is likely that by the time training resumes there could be a backlog of new Associates waiting for training. We will be looking at extending the initial 12-month membership to run from the start of actual training.
