The Enhanced Rider Scheme is a training course aimed at all motorbike riders. It checks and improves your riding skills and confidence on the road. As well as making riding more enjoyable and safer, completing the scheme can give you discounts on your motorbike insurance.
How the Scheme Works
You'll first have a rider assessment with an expert trainer. You'll ride in different road and traffic conditions.
The ride will be long enough for your trainer to make a good assessment of your skills. For most people this is 1-2 hours.
If this shows you don't need more training you'll get a 'DVSA certificate of competence' straight away.
Otherwise, you'll get personalised training to improve your skills and get the certificate at the end of your training.
The DVSA certificate of competence gives you discounts with most motorcycle insurers.
The type of training depends on what you need to brush up on. You might be offered all day courses or shorter sessions.
