ABOUT THE NMC -

This is the homepage of the National Motorcycle Council (NMC), an umbrella group for the main UK motorcycling organisations

WHAT IS THE NMC?

The National Motorcycle Council is a body set up to provide a forum for the different interests within the motorcycle and powered two-wheeler community. Its membership includes manufacturers' and dealers' associations, rider groups, and training/safety organisations.

MISSION STATEMENT

The Council will initiate and pursue agreed objectives in order to promote the use of powered two wheelers (PTWs), and establish them as a mode which is recognised to be an integral part of transport strategy for the new millennium.

ORGANISATIONAL STRUCTURE


The National Motorcycle Council (the Council) is an informal grouping of organisations involved with motorcycling and motorcycling safety. Such organisations may include representatives of the trade, industry, rider groups, motoring organisations, road safety and rider training organisations.

Represented bodies shall be known as Member Organisations.

  • The Council shall appoint a Chairman, who shall be elected bi-annually, and a Secretary or Secretariat who shall be responsible for the day-to-day administration of the Council.
  • The Council shall provide a forum for discussion on matters affecting motorcycling, motorcycle legislation and motorcycle safety, with the objectives of formulating and implementing commonly agreed policies and of lobbying government at local, national and EU level to achieve agreed aims.
  • Any policy decisions shall be arrived at by unanimous agreement among the Member Organisations.
  • The Council shall liase with Government and other appropriate bodies in order to progress its policies to a satisfactory conclusion.
  • The Council will have the power to set up sub-committees to examine specific areas of policy formulation or interest and report back to the Council.
  • The Council will be funded by annual subscriptions from Member Organisations at a scale set by the Council from time to time.
  • The Council shall have the power to reduce or waive such subscriptions as it sees fit.

    Please note that for clarity the words "motorcycle" and "motorcycling" have been used to apply to all Powered Two Wheelers (PTWs) and PTW activities.
