The Apprenticeship Standard and Assessment Plan can be found here.


Written by employers, the Motorcycle Technician (Repair and Maintenance) Level 3 Apprenticeship Standard is suitable for aspiring technicians looking to specialise in motorcycle maintenance and repair. Apprentices can gain expertise in the replacement of components through to rectifying complex faults with the aid of specific diagnostic methods and equipment.

Designed with different learning styles in mind, IMI’s solution ensures Apprentices are fully engaged and prepared for their End-Point Assessment (EPA). This new standard is suited to those who would have typically undertaken the Level 3 Motorcycle Maintenance and Repair Framework.


A Motorcycle Technician works in the motorcycle sector of the motor industry. The role is to service and repair motorcycles, motor scooters, all-terrain vehicles (ATV’s), tricycles and vehicles where the rider sits astride the frame, within either the franchised or independent motorcycle sector.

Duration: 36 Months

It is expected that it will typically take three years for the Apprentice to attain the required level of competence in the workplace, although it may be less if the individual already has significant training and practical experience.

Entry Requirements

Individual employers will set their own selection criteria for the Apprentice. It is recommended during the selection process that the Learner demonstrates the following qualities:

  • Interest in the motorcycle environment
  • Good communication skills, both oral and written
  • Problem solving and self-organisation skills
  • Willingness to learn

Additional Mandatory Requirements

English and Maths at Level 2 (or equivalent) is required to be held by the Learner prior to the EPA. IMI provides solutions to any Apprentice that does not have a Level 2 (or equivalent) in Maths or English at the outset.

Assessment Overview

There are no requirements for formative assessment. However, employers are recommending that, in addition to the formal EPA gateway, there are also on-programme gateways in place. The on-programme gateways can be used to review the Apprentice’s knowledge, skills and behaviour, as set out by the gateway criteria. This will also confirm that the Apprentice is meeting expectations at the EPA gateway prior to their EPA.

Gateway 2 (optional)
