The 16th Safety Japan Instructors’ Competition

BBDC took part in the 16th Safety Japan Instructors’ Competition (2015) held in Japan, Suzuka Circuit.  The Safety Japan Instructors Competition was organized by Honda Motor Co Ltd and held since 1977.  It provides an avenue for Honda instructors to experience and to improve their teaching and riding/driving techniques.  Over 200 people with 67 participants and their supporters attended the event.


After months of intensive training and stringent assessments conducted by our local and Japanese trainers, 3 instructors represented BBDC to compete against 30 participants from 8 other nations- Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Taiwan, Turkey and Australia. 


The competition is divided into motorcycle and automobile categories, and each category consists of 3 riding/driving events and a written report which require extensive knowledge and coaching skill as a safety instructor.

Training at Motegi & Okegawa


After the competition, our instructors also had the opportunity to upgrade their driving and riding skills by attending the training in Okegawa and Motegi conducted by the Japanese Instructors. The training was indeed an eye opening experience for our instructors.  We hope that the techniques and knowledge that they gained will be contributed back to the society.
