I've just completed an 'Enhanced Rider Scheme' course and I have to admit it was quite enjoyable. 6 hours of observation and tutoring for £60 with a £70 contribution from the local authority.
I did mine with a guy called Alan Wright who was an ex motorcycle copper of 25 years and seemed a knowledgeable chap. It was done in an informal manner and he had friendly advice and positive as well as negative feedback. I hate it when you only get negative feedback.
Apparently it could give me a discount on my bike insurance of 10-15% but I'll believe it when I see it.
All in all a pleasant pootle even if it was at or below the speed limit.
