23 February - CIECA WEBINAR SERIES: • DVSA’s Enhanced Rider Scheme (ERS) - Improving rider safety beyond test.


  • Mark Winn – Chief Driving Examiner (Head of Rider Policy) - DVSA
  • Chris Parr – Assistant Chief Driving Examiner (Rider Policy Manager) - DVSA

The Enhanced Rider Scheme (ERS) is a DVSA sponsored motorcycle training course that is ideal for those who have recently passed their full motorcycle test or are returning to motorcycle riding after an extended period out of the saddle. The course is also of benefit to those who are upgrading to a more powerful motorcycle. The Enhanced Rider Scheme does not involve a test, but instead involves rider assessment, leading to personalised training and the issue of a certificate of competence. (https://bikesafe.co.uk/ers/)

Summary of Presentation:

  • DVSA’s ERS scheme is a post test training scheme delivered by accredited motorcycle trainers.
  • The scheme offers a mix of classroom and practical training.
  • All riders receive an assessment ride followed by a training plan working through the schemes core elements.
