Tony Carter

Areas of specialism

I hold an advanced Police class 1 car and motorcycle qualification as well as being a qualified Driving Standards Agency (DSA) qualified Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) motorcycle instructor.

I am an accident investigator, vehicle examiner and a senior advanced motorcycle and driving examiner for the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

I have been a Driving Standards Agency (DSA) subject matter expert since 1996.  Subject matter experts write and prepare the questions for the learner theory test.

In 1980 I became an advanced riding and driving examiner for the RoSPA advanced driving association, and over the next 24 years I rose to the position of senior driving examiner and Chief Motorcycle Examiner. In 1995 I was appointed to the national committee of RoSPA.

In July 2009 I was invited to join the national committee of Road Safe (Driving for Better Business), a Government initiative to improve driving standards in the work place. The committee consists of various parliamentary advisors, ACPO, Insurance companies, local government, RoSPA and other road safety partnerships.

I was a member of the Law Society panel of expert witnesses for motorcycles between 2001 and 2008

I was one of three people responsible for setting up establishing and running the RoSPA national diploma for advanced motorcycle instructors, which until recently was the only recognised course of its kind in the UK.

Until 2004, I was one of only four people in the UK approved to instruct and examine candidates on the RoSPA national diploma in advanced motorcycle instruction.

Expertise and Key Strengths

I have developed working relationships with many advanced motorcycle riding groups and motorcycle clubs and I am regularly asked to give presentations, presently giving on average 20 to 30 presentations a year.

I have investigated many serious and catastrophic road crashes and have been involved in studies commissioned by various agencies, particularly relating to motorcycle clothing and helmets.

During my last five years of Police service I undertook a study of all fatal and serious injury motorcycle accidents in the Thames Valley area in respect of the clothing worn.

After my retirement I continued the study and visited manufacturers both home and abroad where I was able to look at production methods and safety tests carried out.

This has given me a particular area of expertise which has proven to be an advantage in some recent motorcycle accident investigations I have competed, particularly in respect of issues of alleged contributory negligence.

My Career

My career has been focussed around improving driving standards, teaching, safety and accident prevention and investigation.

I worked as head of driver safety for a major UK energy provider, responsible for establishing driving policies and for the safety the company drivers.

I helped develop a programme of in house driver assessment programmes, ran courses to train up in-house driving assessors, gave safe driving related presentations and developed relationships with Road Safe and The Department of Transport.

I would assist managers in the investigation of serious road traffic accidents involving members of their team which involved looking at the basic as well as root cause of these crashes and analysing particular trends, helping develop a long-term safe driving strategy.

Whilst a serving police officer, and since my retirement, I have attended road safety courses at RoSPA in Birmingham, Horncastle and Cardington, various civilian accident investigation courses and courses relating to the recovery of accident damaged and broken down vehicles.

Over the past five years, I have been interviewed by various BBC local radio stations to comment on specific motorcycle and driving issues.

I have also featured on BBC TV, Granada Men & Motors TV channel as well as local radio from time to time, where I have been asked to provide comment on road safety, driving and motorcycle related matters.

In 2014, I was filmed for the BBC TV programme “Fake Britain”, which has aired several times.
