Advanced Riding Courses

You’ve already achieved a great deal by passing your full test. The chances are, that the machine you trained on is very different from the one you have bought or are considering buying.

VMT Post Test Training Courses are an ideal way of learning the finer points of handling your new machine safely, whist dealing with the hazards not always covered in the basic ‘L’ test.

Steering disciplines, riding at higher speeds, cornering and overtaking are all skills that can be learned under the supervision of a qualified and experienced instructor. We will teach you aspects of the Police Advanced Courses so you’ll be riding like a professional in no time.

If either of the below options are too much at the moment, why not try our Rusty Rider Course

Enhanced Rider Scheme:

The DSA, along with the motorcycle industry, has put together a new package of training known as the Enhanced Rider Scheme (ERS). The Scheme checks your motorcycle riding skills and provides training to help you improve. THERE IS NO TEST!

You can get discounts on motorcycle insurance once you’ve successfully completed the Scheme. The Scheme is for you if you’re a fully licenced rider:

  • Have just passed your test
  • Are returning to riding after a break
  • Are upgrading to a more powerful motorbike
  • Want to check your riding standard

DSA ERS Banner

The course begins with a 2 hour assessment of your riding skills on a variety of roads. If this shows you don’t need more training, you’ll get a ‘DSA certificate of competence’ straight away. Otherwise, you’ll get personalised training to improve your skills and get the certificate at the end of your training. The type of training depends on what your improvement needs are but will generally be all-day courses or shorter sessions.
