How the scheme works
You’ll first have a rider assessment with one of our expert trainers. You’ll ride in different road and traffic conditions.
The ride will be long enough for your trainer to make a good assessment of your skills. For most people this is 1 to 2 hours.
If this shows you don’t need more training you’ will be issued via email a ‘DVSA certificate of competence’ straight away.
Otherwise, you’ll get personalised training programme to improve your skills and get the certificate at the end of your training.
The DVSA certificate of competence gives you discounts with most motorcycle insurers. (See participating Insurers below).
