Antonio Avenoso, Executive Director of the ETSC, stated that: “In recent years, the safety of vulnerable road users in Europe, including motorcyclists, has not progressed at the same pace as that of car occupants. Much more needs to be done through the introduction of higher safety standards for infrastructure and vehicles, as well as better enforcement and encouraging safer driver and rider behaviour. We are pleased to support the European Motorcycle Training Quality Label with its focus on helping riders choose approved training courses that help raise awareness of the key safety issues. We believe improved rider training can play an important role as part of the safe-system approach to road safety.”
According to Antonio Perlot, Secretary General of the European Association of Motorcycle Manufacturers:“The European Motorcycle Training Quality Label is one of the main elements of the motorcycle industry’s safety strategy and we are confident that this action contributes to the overall aim of making Europe’s roads better and safer for all motorcyclists. We are delighted that the ETSC recognizes the importance of this initiative and has decided to endorse the European Training Quality Label. We also congratulate SMC for joining the group of the best training providers in Europe”.
Jesper Christensen, Secretary General of the SMC, said: “Our members ride 80% of all motorcycle kilometres in Sweden, so their safety is a top priority for us. Our five hundred instructors of the SMC School strive to reach out to more riders and provide safety-orientated and fun motorcycle training. We are really happy that our educational platform has received this important recognition at the European level.”
