La formation à la conduite moto vue par les moniteurs : Analyse des pratiques professionnelles

Abstract : Literature on powered two wheelers reveals a mixed effect of the motorcycle initial training, that has low or no effects on novice motorcyclists’ driving. While it has been tested whether training improves driving skills and competencies, there is in fact little knowledge on the content of the training. This study aims to identify and describe the teaching practices used by instructors, and to identify the impact of the GDE matrix on those trainings. Fourteen instructors took part in semi-structured interviews, and qualitative analyses provided nine categories of practices. Five were considered as “good” by instructors: progressive training, individualised training, vivid training, working on cognitions and emotions, and learning beyond what is required for the final test. Four categories of practices were judged negatively by the instructors, referring to not using the practices described above, focusing only on what is expected for the final test, badly or not teaching driving techniques, and lacking of exemplarity. We will discuss whether those practices should objectively be considered as “good” or “bad” in the light of learning and educational theories. We will also suggest ways to improve the initial training of motorcyclists and the licence final test.
