What Makes Us Unique

The BMW Rider Training courses are created and overseen by Ian Biederman who has been working in the motorcycle training industry since 1990. He brings his unique style of teaching to every course conducted at the school, ensuring that all people attending are given the relevant guidance for their individual needs.

The quality of training is defined first and foremost by the quality of the Trainer. There are many schools out there, and lots are small operations set up by experienced riders. However an experienced and capable rider does not necessarily make a good trainer. 

Our training team is very special as it comprises RoSPA Diploma Instructors and current serving police officers. All much more highly qualified and specialist than simply a CBT or DAS Instructor. 

The other key factor is the quality of the equipment and facilities. We solely use BMW motorcycles for all of our training, from the very start of your journey and up to the highest levels. These bikes are all under one year old, equipped with ABS, Heated grips and we have low seat models available. We have industry leading facilities and a CBT / Module 1 training arena on site at our training centre. 

We don’t profess to be the cheapest, just the best. Our pass rates are better than the average and we have a 98% recommendation rate from previous customers.

BMW Rider Training is based in Royston, Hertfordshire and is owned by Ian Biederman.

Ian has been working in the industry since 1990 and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the school.

We are unique in the industry and have customers attending the school from all around the world


The School has a large range of BMW Motorcycles which are replaced annually to ensure you experience the best machines in the marketplace.



Here at BMW Rider Training, learning to ride is seamless. All motorcycles have ABS, traction control and heated grips for your comfort and safety. 


And class leading facilities to give you the very best experience. With lounge areas to enjoy your coffee and dedicated training rooms for those theory sessions and discussions about riding motorcycles



A large private, secure purpose built training area is dedicated for us to use throughout the courses.

The training area is large enough to go through the finer elements of slow speed control and balance of a motorcycle and even cover many of the particulars of the module 1 test.


At the start of every course customers get to experience the basics of clutch control, throttle control, steering and balance on our unique rolling road.  This way you can understand the essence and start point of motorcycling before we head over to the training area.
