The Ceredigion Enhanced Rider Scheme (CERS) offers training to qualified motorcyclists who reside in Ceredigion and is available for free throughout the summer this year.

Ceredigion County Council’s Road Safety Team provide CERS, which is subsidised by the Welsh Government and is delivered by DSA approved instructors. The one-day course is both theory and practical-based learning. It is suitable for riders who have recently passed the test, are returning to riding after a break, are upgrading to a more powerful motorcycle or want to check their riding standard.

Councillor Dafydd Edwards, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Highways and Environmental Services said, “Ceredigion Enhanced Rider Scheme is the perfect opportunity to develop your skills, whether you’re a very experienced motorcyclist or you’ve only just passed your test. We’re extremely fortunate in Ceredigion to have an abundance of sweeping idyllic countryside with routes that attract many a motorcyclist. We want to encourage all motorcyclists in Ceredigion to take up this beneficial opportunity to receive free training which may help develop your skills further.”

The Enhanced Rider Scheme course is being held at Aberystwyth Fire Station on Saturdays, beginning at 9am and finishing at 4pm.

Katy Peat, a motorcyclist who completed the course last year highlighted how the course has helped her since attending the day session, “I did an Enhanced Rider Scheme session last summer. Every time I ride, I think and act on the feedback that I received on the ERS.”

A certificate will be presented on completion of the course which may reduce the cost of insurance premiums as well as provide evidence of additional motorcycle training if you wish to join a group such as Blood Bikes.
