Take your riding to the next level with post-test training
To enjoy more of what two-wheels has to offer, post-test motorcycle training is very important. The good news is that through MCIA RIDE accredited motorcycle training schools, there are several ways to achieve this. After gaining your full motorcycle licence there is no substitute for riding the miles and experiencing the road, but equally this is where bad habits can begin to develop.
Post-test training with an MCIA RIDE accredited training school can address these issues while significantly enhancing your confidence, increasing your skills, boosting your safety and ensuring that you appreciate every journey.
Back-to-biking and refresher training
To fully enjoy all that a return to two wheels has to offer, it’s important to remember that after a long break you may require professional training, a mindset ‘check’ and an awareness that motorcycle riding has changed.
Technologies are more sophisticated, bikes are more technical and there are higher volumes of traffic to consider. Whilst two-wheels can put a smile back on your face, jumping straight back into the saddle without first investing in post-test training is not recommended.
For returning riders, we recommend contacting your nearest MCIA RIDE accredited motorcycle training school to book a refresher day, or full post-test training. You will find this very worthwhile and will ensure that your return to motorcycle riding is as safe and enjoyable as possible.
You may be able to utilise a one-day refresher at an Enhanced Rider Scheme assessment, so that a bespoke training plan can be recommended. This can not only make you safer and more skilled but will also maximise the smiles associated with returning to this wonderful mode of transport.
The DVSA Enhanced Rider Scheme (ERS)
A good first-step to post-test motorcycle training is the DVSA Enhanced Rider Scheme (ERS). ERS is a fun, bespoke and structured program that begins with an assessment ride. The course is then usually delivered over three days by a fully qualified, DVSA certified instructor.
Most MCIA RIDE accredited training schools offer ERS and by booking this important post-test training course with an accredited training school, you can be assured of the very highest standards of training.
BikeSafe is your opportunity to be assessed by a serving police-graded motorcyclist, who will identify your strengths and address any weaknesses.
