I’ve just heard that Road Safety Minister Jim Fitzpatrick announced yesterday at the Bike Show:
“the launch of the Driving Standard Agency’s Enhanced Rider Scheme. This is aimed at enhancing the road safety skills of the motorcycle and scooter riders already on the roads. The Agency has been working with the motorcycle industry to devise a new training package for the benefit of all riders with a full motorcycle licence. Those who pass the Enhanced Rider Scheme will get a certificate that will put them in line for discounts on their insurance”.
There’s no further information on the press release, and the link to the DSA website offers no information about this whatsoever. More as I get it.
