Advanced instructor qualification question from Richard Howes Yates
Question: Question asked on behalf of Richard Howes (Kickstart Training) by Jez Tromans (VideoBiker) – “Do I need an advanced riding qualification to be able to teach the DVSA Enhanced Rider Scheme?”
Answer: Hi Richard. No, you don’t need an advanced instructor qualification, you need an advanced riding qualification. However, I would strongly recommend that if you or any of your staff are delivering ERS, that they get that extra qualification. It can only enhance their training and it’s better for the customer that they are receiving training from someone who is suitably qualified.

Resources for ERS instructors & ATB's
The Enhanced Rider Scheme (ERS) resources and information on this page are from a DVSA webinar that was run in association with VideoBiker on the 12th July 2018. The content of this ERS webinar (and this page) is aimed at motorcycle training schools (ATB’s) and motorcycle instructors.
It will therefore have limited value for non-instructors, who are advised to contact their local motorcycle training school (ATB) for the latest up-to-date ERS information. The full webinar is available to all instructors via VideoBiker membership (free) – join here.
