The purpose of the DIAmond Advanced motorcycle test is to ensure that candidates are able to demonstrate to the examiner their ability to ride safely in a variety of road and traffic conditions and to manoeuvre their machine accurately under control and with proper regard for the safety of other road users. Beyond the DIAmond Advanced test is the DIAmond Special Test which allows just 2 minor faults in an advanced ride lasting approximately 1.5 hours. Our Chief Instructor passed this Special test with no minor marks and went on to qualify as a DIAmond Examiner.



Founded in 1978 to represent the interests of the professional driving/riding instructor, the DIA is regularly consulted by all the relevant Government bodies, has representation in Parliament, and enjoys influence in Europe and throughout the world. With ever-more stringent road legislation, European safety regulations, and stricter controls on training, it is essential the views of the driver training industry are heard at Government level.
