DVSA helps new riders get the right information

POSTED: 29/04/2021



The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has launched a new information portal that offers tailored advice to existing and new riders.

Elements of the site are specifically tailored to motorcycles and scooters, and consideration is given to a variety of conditions, situations, manoeuvres and learnings, which are unique to two wheelers.

The website endeavours to provide advice to riders whatever the stage of their journey. Novice riders can practice theory test questions using an advisory tool, which enables users to focus on areas they may not be confident with, or hazard perception clips to increase users’ awareness. The site also offers guidance to riders looking to expand their riding knowledge via advanced rider training and the enhanced rider scheme.

Karen Cole, the Motorcycle Industry Association’s Director of Road Safety and Rider Training said; “The platform offers a selection of resources tailored to PTW users and novices, giving some excellent advice, direction and tools to make the journey on to two wheels as comprehensive, yet simple as possible. The inclusion of post-test training also shows the DVSA shares the MCIA’s view that once a test is passed it should not signify the end of learning or training.”

Fiveways Motorcycle Centre Ltd is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Fiveways Motorcycle Centre Ltd to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
