The driving instructor cycle awareness pilot was announced by the Department for Transport in June 2018. The Bikeability Trust was tasked with delivering the project within the context of the Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy safety review.

The pilot initiative gives driving instructors the chance to undertake bespoke training to ensure cyclists’ safety is at the forefront of their minds when they teach new drivers.

The package was developed by the Bikeability Trust working with the cycling and driving instructor organisations represented on the Department for Transport (DfT) ADI pilot working group, and with individual ADIs who contributed to an online survey in Autumn 2018 and development workshops Spring 2019. The driving instructor cycle awareness pilot addresses the current paucity of cycle awareness learning resources for ADIs and learner drivers and provides resources ADIs can use for their own professional development and whilst teaching.
