Use cycle training to teach road safety to all new drivers

Use cycle training to teach road safety to all new drivers

Require all those wishing to learn to drive to undertake a bicycle training course before starting to learn to drive.

Why is this important?

This would enable new drivers to understand the benefits and vulnerabilities of being on a bicycle, improving road safety for everyone.

It would also improve the skills and awareness of those adults most likely to cycle on urban roads at peak times.

Thirdly, it would enable many more people to experience cycling as an adult and encourage them to see the opportunities it presents for clean, cheap and easy transport.


Reasons for signing

  • Good idea. It could then be rolled out to all other road users especially including current drivers.
  • very sensible idea
  • Cycling gives you a different perspective on road safety and how to drive.
