The DAS Assessment

To become qualified to be a DAS Instructor, you must have completed and passed the DVSA two day CBT Assessment. You will then be able to attend the DVSA DAS Assessment, which lasts half a day to demonstrate your ability to transition learner riders from smaller to larger machines.

You must also be able to cope with riders who are experiencing problems as a result of moving up to a bigger bike and keep them safe and risk free. This is done by gauging their ability and giving bespoke instruction in a Client Centred way. The examiner acts as a student during role play and you are expected to give a number of lessons to show that you are capable of teaching new riders on larger bikes.

A flexible training approach

You will need to have a robust training strategy that allows you to be flexible in your teaching delivery. Being able to deliver precise lessons with good interaction and then give ad hoc guidance with the changing environment. The examiner will control the timings for the sessions but you will be expected to teach at a high standard and be able to conduct any lesson that has been assigned to you.

To fully prepare you should be able to coach in three important session:

  1. Introduction to the larger machine
  2. Develop off road riding skills in a safe environment
  3. Deliver three on road riding lessons

To be thoroughly ready you should have a formulated set of lesson plans and know how to deliver training lessons in a bespoke fashion in line with the students’ needs. Further to this, you must understand methods of instruction and have a comprehensive book of Training Diagrams to help with explanation. A picture paints a thousand words.
