1st Gear has now gained full MCIAC Accreditation. This is one of the industry’s highest accreditations which is a far superior standard of the DVSA approved training bodies (ATB’s). With over 700 DVSA approved training bodies, only a handful of ATB’s have achieved full MCIAC Accreditation.
The MCIAC have stringent criteria which must be met and adhered to, to gain their full accreditation. Potential new motorcyclists should consider using MCIAC Accredited ATB’s, as they can be assured of a high standard of customer service and training.
