I know we have been talking about 'Roadcraft' on this forum and getting 'bogged down' with its application and sutiablity for novice riders. In the UK a government agency, the DSA has introduced a scheme which has been endorsed by a number of insurance companies - (Discount available).

I am part of that scheme and you can get more information at:

It can be easily adapted for the US,

That's a pretty good concept, and using reduced insurance premiums makes a good incentive. Although some of us older riders probably can't reduce the premiums much, I pay $55 a YEAR for example.

It does make me wonder about organized mentoring here in the states. I've seen it mentioned several times, but not an organized system. I'm referring to a unofficial, non-gov't program. Of course some sort of certification would make the mentors at least show some skill and knowledge.
