Our motorcycle students are of all ages and we have female staff as well as students
Our motorcycle department is known across the country and some of our students travel from places as far away as Portsmouth and Birmingham to take our courses! We offer: - a range of full-time courses for school leavers - day and evening part-time courses for adults - apprenticeships and advanced apprenticeships - the new Automotive Technician Accreditation course - bespoke training Our long-standing reputation in the sector was confirmed in 2005 when we became a Centre of Vocational Excellence (CoVE) in Motor Vehicles. The CoVE scheme has now ended across the country but the department continues to benefit from the equipment and resources gained, including state-of-the-art learning technology.
Apprenticeships in Motorcycles

For practical, work-based skills and a qualification, an apprenticeship is a great idea - whether you are just strarting out on your career as a technician or an employer looking to fill a position in your company.
If you are interested in becoming a motorcycle apprentice please contact us on info@merton.ac.uk or call 020 8408 6500.
If you are an employer interested in taking on an apprentice contact our Employer helpline on 020 8408 6567 or email employerinfo@merton.ac.uk
If you would like to learn more about the courses please look at our leaflets by choosing the links below.

The student bikes on display
For the first time Merton College has entered the Youth Bike Competition, in which Students design and build a bike or trike and then take it to a national show where all entries are judged in a number of categories. Brian Caket and Tommy Coogan worked with two teams, the NVQ1 Motorcycles Foundation Group, and a group of students from Lindenbridge School. Each team designed and built a trike and kept a photo diary to shows its progress. Four students from each group accompanied their creations to the show, where despite very strong competition they won 4 awards. The Lindenbridge trike called “Christine” won in the following categories,” Best Trike” and “Most Zany Bike” and were runners up in “Best Decorated”. The NVQ1 group with their Trike “Ruf Rider” won the “Organisers Choice Award”.

Unhappy Indian ?

why UK.

aren't Indian institutes qualified for good teaching?
my personal choice will always be any Indian institute.

(no offense guys, just a general question for those who wants to go overseas to UK/AUSTRALIA)

While there are several Automobile Engineering degree / diploma courses available all over India, there are none that solely focus on Motorcycle Engineering.

Most of these degree / diploma courses will have a subject in one term / semester, on two wheelers.

At best, there are vocational training courses dedicated solely to two wheelers.

Learn more about MECHANIC REPAIR & MAINTENANCE OF TWO WHEELER at http://dget.gov.in/lisdapp/Trade/syllabus/pdf/TTMTW.pdf

Or, as a part of a larger automotive vocational course : http://dget.gov.in/mes/curricula/AURFINALMARCH.pdf

Lastly, and quite unbelievably, in the late '80s (and probably early '90s too ... ) D. G. Ruparel College in Matunga, Mumbai offered a Scooter & Motorcycle Service vocational course (in lieu of Computer Science, or Electronics, or Electrical Maintenance) for 11th and 12th standard Science students. The college sent it's students to the Industrial Training Institute (ITI) at Cadell Road, Mahim for classroom and labs. Don't know if this continues any more.
