Post bike test training

1 November 2006

The Driving Standard Agency’s has announced a new scheme for motorcyclists.

The Agency is planning to launch a new register of DSA approved trainers to offer rider development to motorcyclists who have already taken a riding test and Ministers signed the go ahead for plans this week.

The move follows the publication of the Government’s Motorcycling Strategy, which aims to make motorcycling more mainstream. The scheme will help to ensure that the training delivered is of an agreed standard and the instructors will have demonstrated a high level of skill and competence in the area of riding and instructional ability.

The scheme also aims to improve rider safety, with motorcyclists identified as a priority area for road safety. The Agency is also looking to introduce a Pass Plus scheme for motorcyclists, which could include a link to obtaining insurance discounts for those who receive training from DSA accredited post-test instructors.
