This course is aimed at newly qualified riders who have passed their DSA Practical Riding test (Modules 1 and 2) and are looking to improve their riding.
It covers the requirements of the DSA’s Enhanced Rider Scheme (ERS) and so attendees will be awarded a “Certificate of Riding Competence” which will entitle them to an insurance discount with participating insurance companies.
However, the course goes much further than ERS and introduces riders to the concepts and techniques followed by Advanced Riders in accordance with “Motorcycle Roadcraft, the Police Rider’s Handbook to Better Motorcycling”. Attendees will be given a copy of the Roadcraft book at the start of the course.
Who is it suitable for?
The course is suitable for anyone holding a full UK motorcycle licence (Category A or A2 from Jan 2013). The course is also suitable for riders who took their tests under the restricted licence route and who are restricted to machines of 33bhp.

1. Characteristics of a good rider
