We are pleased to promote the Department for Transport’s new driving instructor cycle awareness pilot, Cycle Savvy Driving. The training package has been developed by the Bikeability Trust working with the cycling and driving instructor organisations represented on the Department for Transport (DfT) ADI pilot working group, including MSA GB, and many individual ADIs.
The driving instructor cycle awareness pilot addresses the current lack of cycle awareness learning resources for ADIs and learner drivers and provides resources ADIs can use for their own professional development and whilst teaching.
This evaluated pilot project seeks to recruit ADIs from between May and September 2021, and ADIs who register for the pilot will be randomly assigned into treatment or control groups, who will providing valuable feedback for the pilot project.
The Bikeability Trust’s Head of Development Benjamin Smith will present about the project and answer questions. at our zoom meeting on this Thursday 13th May at 7.30pm, there will be plenty time to ask questions and we will have a general industry update on the night, if you would like an invitation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a joining link nearer the event. The pilot is initially in England; however all instructors are welcome to attend.
