About this event

The Safe Urban Driving course focuses on vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, cyclist’s and motorcyclists but has a focus on cyclists. The course includes a practical ‘on-road’ cycle training element and gives drivers a ‘real life’ experience as to a cyclist’s perspective of riding on busy roads, as well as in traffic. The course consists of two 3.5-hour modules (both delivered on the same day); the first module is classroom-based theory, and the second module, an outdoor practical session where drivers get a cyclist view of the road.

Theory Module (3.5 hours)

This part of the course focuses on sharing the road safely and highlights the vulnerability of other road users. It also explains how the London streetscape is evolving to encourage more walking and cycling

Practical Module (3.5 hours)

After the initial bicycle control skills training, drivers ride on bikes to areas of potential conflict including junctions, traffic lights and Advanced Stop Lines. Subjects covered include: -

• Introducing active travel, driver fitness and health

• Giving drivers a cyclist’s perspective of riding on busy roads and an understanding of the issues faced by vulnerable road users

• Recognising best driving practice around cyclists

Practical on road experience at areas of potential driver/cyclist conflict including junctions, traffic lights and Advanced Stop Lines
