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.
