Enhanced Rider Scheme costs
Question: Asked by Alan Kelly, Scotriders (Scotland) – “We’ve been involved with ERS from the outset and issue certificates regularly. We like the simplification of how ERS certificates are issued. Our question relates to the new modules and that we are not qualified to deliver them all. Can the DVSA put together a directory for existing ERS trainers, so we can refer to other ERS instructors for specific ERS modules?”
Answer: Hi Alan and again, thanks for the positive response and this is something that we had not thought about. we had thought about the additional modules and who would be able to deliver them. I think there needs to be a little self-regulation within the industry and clearly if you are delivering ERS but have no knowledge of the blood bikers, then you shouldn’t be delivering that module. He are looking to produce some information and syllabus for our work with the blood bikers – so that’s to look out for in the future. Regarding a list/directory of who can deliver these specific ERS modules, I’d first push that back to the ATB’s to promote via their own websites, along with which modules can be delivered. This question is something that I will take away with me and on the next phase of ERS development it’s something that we will put to the stake holder group regarding the practicalities of such a directory.

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.
