Who is it suitable for?

This VCQ is for:

  • employees working within the industry who are seeking to enhance and/or demonstrate their experience and competence in their work role. Please note, experienced staff enter onto a VCQ programme at the level suited to their role and competence.


This is a work-based automotive qualification that assesses the competence and knowledge that motorcycle technicians require to perform their job role effectively. It is based upon the IMI Sector Skills Council's National Occupational Standards for Maintenance and Repair – Motorcycle route.

This VCQ is designed to provide a standardised approach for the delivery and assessment of the competence and knowledge requirements and forms the integral component of the IMI SSC Maintenance and Repair Apprenticeship framework (for motorcycle).

Learners are required to demonstrate all of the evidence requirements, learning outcomes, assessment criteria through workplace evidence. Full guidance documents and assessment records are supplied by IMI.


For some learners this qualification could prepare them for progression to further learning and training. For others, this qualification could also provide a useful recognition of their practical skills and knowledge, to aid their step from one job role to another.


The knowledge component of this qualification is independently assessed via online testing. The tests are mapped to each knowledge unit's learning outcomes and assessment criteria to ensure coverage. These tests are marked electronically by IMI.
