Refresher Course/ Enhanced Rider Training
Enhanced Rider Insurance Certificate (ERIC).
In November 2007, the DSA officially launched the Enhanced Rider Scheme (ERS). Any rider who shows the required level of competency on training delivered by an RPMT will receive an Enhanced Rider Insurance Certificate (ERIC). They can present this certificate to major insurers to be in line for possible discounts.. Further, they will also be eligible for contined discounts by receiving additional developmental training in future years. This applies to ALL riders taking RPMT training such as new riders, experienced riders and those returning to riding after a break.
If you passed your test a few years ago and haven't been riding for a while, then our refresher course may be just what you need. This is a relaxed course for riders to bring their skills up to date, we decided to include one in our training schedule. We are keen to understand what you are looking to achieve and will tailor each course appropriately. During the day we start of with the basic skills that all riders need and then progress at your pace to cover techniques which will enhance your riding .
We will Start by taking the opportunity to find out about your riding skills and previous experience, while giving you the chance to tell us the kind of things you want to focus on. If you're riding one of our bikes and haven't ridden for a long time, we may start you off on a lighter bike. However, We will stay local, so that as soon as you are ready to progress we can swap over to a larger bike.
We start the day with a short ride to make sure you are comfortable with the bike and allow your instructor to plan a suitable route. Basic road safety is always vital when returning to motorcycle riding, so our minimum aim is to make you a safer rider
Improving your skills
