Thailand

We will introduce our initiatives on the promotion of safe riding and more.

Thailand

Yamaha Riding Academy (YRA) is a training facility, located on the grounds of Thai Yamaha Motor in Samutprakarn province. At the time it was built, Thailand had more than 70,000 motorcycle accidents annually. Thai Yamaha Motor has been active in promoting safe motorcycle riding, since 2005, and has been offering safe riding courses 40 to 50 times per year, as well as holding official tests and issuing certificate of qualification for qualified riders. To expand and enhance the quality of these activities, Yamaha Riding Academy was established in August 2008 as the Group’s first overseas training facility.

At YRA, we offer a wide range of programs for customers who have yet to obtain a rider’s license and for veteran riders who already own a motorcycle, as well as programs on how to safety ride scooters and large capacity motorcycles.
One of these programs involves assisting riders to obtain a license.

In addition to providing instructions toward getting a license, this program has an online system connected to the Thai Ministry of Transport, allowing customers to take the license test on-site.

Even outside the facility, the YRA has signed a comprehensive agreement with vocational training schools concerning safety training operations. Yamaha Riding Academy instructors train instructors hired by the vocational training schools, who engage in various activities across the country, such as promotion of safe riding and holding kid’s mini-bike classes (riding schools for kids using the PW50, TT-R50, or other mini-bike models) at various events.

Customers who need support for obtaining a motorcycle license, particularly in rural areas, can take a course at a vocational training school held with cooperation from a local Yamaha dealer and the Thai Ministry of Transport.
