Motorcycle Safety & Driveability/Two Wheeler Motorcycle Training Schools.



We see very few (Hardly) Two Wheeler viz Motorcycles, Bikes, Scooters etc Training Schools as compared to many 4 wheeler viz Cars, Jeeps, Trucks, Buses etc Motor training schools.

What could be the primary reason for this ?.

Do you feel the Two Wheeler Motorcycle Training School Business
will not flourish as compared to 4 Wheeler Motorcycle Training Schools ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,

ANSWER: Prashant,

Thank you for the question. It is my experience that driving schools exist to fill only the demand in proportion to that demand. For example, truck or bus driving schools exist to fill the need to supply drivers. Many company in the US have difficulty finding truck and bus drivers. At times when unemployment is high, more people look toward a career driving as a means to earn a living.

The automobile driving schools are mostly supported by young, first time drivers. Many states or insurance companies either require proof of a driving course or economic incentives for passing such a course.

Motorcycle training in most US states is voluntary and is offered to individuals as an alternative to the state sponsored testing programs. The motorcycle trainers will teach people to ride and also administer the state required licensing tests.

Often the question of mandating motorcycle training arises. It is my belief as a motorcycle trainer that the current classes are filled with individuals who have elected to take part in the class. If the class were mandated we would have students who are only in the classes because they were compelled to be there. As you can imagine they would not be as enthusiastic participants as those who desired to be in the class.

I hope this answers your questions.

Thank you,
Tom Wright

Thank you.

Do you feel the Key element for success to this Business would be keeping different varieties of the Motorcycles viz TVS Scooty, Bajaj Pulsar, Enfield Bullet etc

i.e. Different Motorcycles Models from Different Manufacturers viz scooter, bike, luna, mopet etc which will offer a variety to the consumers who would like to learn 2- wheelers ?.

The Training cost will vary from vehicle to vehice a consumer would like to learn a 2 wheeler.

Awaiting your reply,

I apologize for the delay in responding. I did not see your follow up questions.

I am not familiar with the brands and models of motorcycles and scooters you reference but since the basic principles are found on riding you could use the basic training with modifications for each unique model.

It will be beneficial if the customer understands that the training is directed toward their safety and riding skills.

Best of luck with your venture into this.
