ERS is not a test. It is competency based training and is open to anyone with a full bike licence (A, A2, A1)
ERS is usually taught on a 2-1 basis with a maximum of two students per course. 1-2-1 training is also available. 2-1 training can only be carried out if both riders are on similar sized bikes.
How does the day run?
Initially we agree aims from the day, as all riders have different needs. The riding assessment covers different aspects of riding, with the topics and route led by your training needs.
Using cameras to record footage of your riding, we will use this to develop your riding skills during the day. If there are further areas of training needed we can arrange further sessions to suit. There is a maximum of 2 students on the day, although individual sessions can also be catered for?
Benefits of the training
Riders find they benefit from an independent assessment of their riding that highlights issues with their riding they were not aware of, even after many years of experience. Improved confidence, especially in slow speed control, bends & corners, and overtaking are often highlighted by students.
Footage from the day is also made available to take away after the training, which many find helpful and fun to share with other riders.
Completion of the day results in a DVSA ERS Certificate being issued which can help reduce insurance premiums too.
