Learning to ride
What we're doing to improve and set standards for learning to ride, including the skills, knowledge and understanding needed for a lifetime of safe riding.
Mark Jaffe and Mike Desmond, both Enhanced Rider Scheme (ERS) trainers, discuss delivering ERS training, the benefits the scheme brings to riders skills and how it improves their pupils confidence. As part of our commitment to a lifetime of safe riding, we want to encourage people who have passed their full test to keep improving their riding skills and knowledge. ERS is a great way for riders to continue the develop of their skills in environments they don’t ride in day to day.
