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.

Driving instructors will be offered bespoke training to ensure cyclists’ safety is at the forefront of their minds when they teach new drivers, in a pilot initiative launched today (29 June 2018) by then Cycling Minister Jesse Norman.

The 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, 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.
