ERS (Enhanced Rider Scheme) for any motorcyclist with a full licence wishing to earn insurance discounts and improve their road skills.

The thrill of the open road, choose your own adventure, who knows where you will end up? The majority of existing bikers feel they are skilled riders, however an assessment often reveals shortfalls that have gone unnoticed.

ERS Enhanced Rider Scheme Training

The Metropolitan Police Force, in common with many other police authorities operate a scheme called ‘Bikesafe’. This is a ride assessment with a police motorcyclist, designed to discover any shortfalls in the rider’s abilities. Following the assessment the officer will often advise the need for further training and recommend the DVSA Enhanced Rider Scheme. Our instructors are DVSA qualified to deliver ERS assessment and training, and are on the DVSA register of post-test motorcycle trainers.

Prices start from as little as £75 (You can use your own bike or one of ours.)

The enjoyment gained from riding a motorcycle skilfully and safely is second to none. However it takes confidence, excellent riding skills, physical co-ordination and balance. Keeping your skills up to date and checking that you have not become over confident, complacent, or picked up some bad or dangerous habits is something few of us do.

The DVSA, along with the motorcycle industry, has put together a new package of training known as the Enhanced Rider Scheme (ERS). The scheme is beneficial to all bike riders who have a full motorcycle licence, no matter what size of bike, or the experience level of the rider. There is no test involved and you may not need to take any training if your skills are assessed as satisfactory. You will also earn discounts on your insurance as a result.

Not all crashes are down to mistakes by riders, but we can all pick up bad habits. The accident statistics among motorcyclists would suggest that everyone should at least have their riding ability assessed from time to time. Ironing out those bad habits and improving your anticipation skills will not only keep you safer on the roads, but will also help you to get more from your bike.

If you have no significant areas of weakness we will give you a DVSA Certificate of Competence – Enhanced Rider Bonus. You can then get an insurance discount from one of the many insurers who have signed up to support the scheme. If you do have areas that would benefit from further training you would qualify for your certificate after successfully completing the recommended training. By having your riding ability assessed, we can tailor a development programme to suit your needs.

These courses are aimed at the following and are normally run on a one to one basis:

  • • HAVE JUST PASSED THEIR TEST
  • • ARE RETURNING TO RIDING AFTER A BREAK
  • • ARE UPGRADING TO A BIGGER BIKE
  • • WANT TO BRING THEIR SKILLS UP TO DATE
