Your Renewal

Each year, you must renew your instructor profile on Link. This gives you the opportunity to review the documents you have in place so you can continue to deliver Bikeability as a registered instructor. 

Renewals are important because: 

  • It helps us protect Bikeability riders by ensuring each instructor’s safeguarding, first aid, SEND training, and qualifications are up-to-date 
  • You must be registered with the Trust to deliver cycle training under the Bikeability brand. Your employer cannot receive funding for any Department for Transport funded Bikeability if you are not registered as an instructor 
  • We need to know how many instructors are delivering Bikeability, which helps us secure future funding, including instructor training bursaries and support 
  • If a complaint is made about your conduct, the Trust will check your registration record. If you are found to be deregistered or have out of date documents, you will face consequences 

You will be sent an automatic reminder email asking you to complete your renewal. Your associated training providers will be able to see your renewal status through Link. If you do not complete the renewal by the deadline, you will be deregistered.

Please contact the Trust by emailing if you are having problems with the renewals process or would prefer to complete this over the phone.
