Enhanced Rider Scheme

Enjoy your motorcycle more by upgrading your skills

Thanks to a discount provided by the Derby & Derbyshire Road Safety partnership qualified riders from Derbyshire can take a 5-hour Enhanced Rider Scheme training course at a fixed price.

The Enhanced Rider Scheme (ERS), was created by the DVSA as extra training for full 'A' motorcycle licence holders and is delivered by motorcycle instructors who have qualified as a post-test instructor.

The scheme is suitable if you fit any of these:

  • are returning to riding
  • want to be a better, smoother, safer rider
  • have just passed your test
  • are upgrading to a more powerful motorcycle

The way the discount works depends on whether you decide to do the training alone or share your training with another rider. If you choose to train with a fellow rider, it will cost you a maximum of £39 each or if you prefer a one to one experience a maximum of £59.

All discounted ERS courses are subject to availability of funding and may not always be available.

To take advantage of our discounted training please complete the application form on this page.
