Who the enhanced rider scheme is for?
The ERS (Enhanced Rider Scheme) introduced by the government is aimed primarily at riders who:
- Have recently passed their test
- Upgrading to a more powerful machine
- Returning to motorcycling after a break
- Are looking for an assessment of current skill level and development
What the enhanced rider scheme involves?
Your Alpha instructor will give advice on the basic principles of safety from how to make yourself more visible and create a better presence on the road, how to use the power of the machine in a controlled and safer manner, how to use road positioning to your advantage, how to improve cornering skills, overtaking skills, town riding and filtering and much more…
What happens during the enhanced rider scheme assessment?
ERS is not a pass or fail test. Following an initial assessment of current skill level carefully matched with the rider’s personal needs a rider development plan is devised that concentrates on the specific areas requiring attention, rather than taking a “one size fits all” approach.
The ride will last long enough for your trainer to make an accurate assessment of your needs. For most people this is two to three hours. We’ll cover everything you need to know through hands-on training and advanced Motorcycle rider courses London
