What is ERS?ERS stands for Enhanced Rider Scheme and provides riders with a unique opportunity to improve your riding skills and help reduce your insurance premiums.
"No matter what skill level you are at as a motorcyclist, you will undoubtedly learn an awful lot from the Enhanced Rider Scheme in London. From people who have just passed, to people getting back on the bike, to people that ride for a living. Each and every cyclist can transform the way they think about driving with the professional advice provided on the course." - Read the rest of our blog post here.
Its a joint Driving Standards agency ( DSA ) and Motorcycle Industry Association ( MCIA ) scheme designed for fully licensed motorcyclist and its perfect for those of you who:
- have just passed your test
- are upgrading to a more powerful bike
- are returning to biking after a break
- simply want a health check on your riding or thinking of going on to a higher level
How does it workYou book a slot of two hours then If your riding is satisfactory, the process ends there and you will be issued with an ERS certificate.
If training (two hour slot) is needed, a rider development plan is devised that concentrates on the specific areas needing attention, rather than taking a " one size fits all " approach.
How do I claim the insurance discount?Once you've completed your training and received your DSA Certificate of Competence you will need to produce this to your insurance company.
All the major insurance company's ( available on line ) sponsor this scheme.
