Further training

Further training

Passing your test isn’t the end of learning to ride a motorbike: it’s only the beginning. As you become more experienced you’ll learn more about how to be a good motorcyclist, but you can also do more training to help you learn – and to bring down the cost of your insurance.

If you have an A1 (light motorbike) or A2 (medium motorbike) licence, you can upgrade your licence so you can ride a larger motorbike.

The enhanced rider scheme is aimed at all motorbike riders. It checks and improves your riding skills and confidence on the road. Completing the enhanced rider scheme can help you get more out of your riding and give you discounts on your motorbike insurance.

The scheme starts with a rider assessment: an expert trainer will see how you ride in different road and traffic conditions. This usually takes between one and two hours.

The trainer will then give you personalised training, after which you’ll get a certificate of competence. If the rider assessment shows that you don’t need any further training, you’ll be given the certificate straight away.
