The Cycle Savvy Driving website provides access to cycle awareness practical training and online learning resources. These are initially available on a trial basis between April and October 2021. After the trial phase, we hope to roll the courses out nationally in 2022.
To help us understand your interest in and experience of the course, as well as any longer-term impacts on attitudes and behaviour, we would like you to take part in some short surveys about how you think the learning course might help you to teach those who are learning to drive.
Participation in the surveys is voluntary. Survey findings will help us to understand what approved driving instructors think about the training course, and will also help us to make improvements to it.
Upon registration for the trial, you will be randomly assigned to one of two groups:
- Train now: ADIs with immediate access to the resources, including the 2 hour online training, and the 3.5 hour on-road practical training course. The practical elements of the training will involve riding a cycle in traffic. Practical training courses will be delivered in England only. The surveys will be staged so that you complete the first survey now as part of the registration process, and the second survey immediately after you have completed the online and/or practical training courses. The third survey will be emailed to you around two months after you have completed the course. Please also share the website link and your chosen username with your learner drivers, which will allow them to access the online course.
- Train later: ADIs with access to the online training as soon as the pilot ends in October 2021. You will be asked to complete a follow up survey three months after registering.The first survey should be completed now, as part of the registration process. We will send you the second survey in three months’ time, following your registration. The surveys should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.
You will be notified whether you are able to access the training now or in October immediately by email. This approach is fair and necessary for assessing the effectiveness of the trial materials before they are rolled out nationally.
Please be assured that all responses are confidential, and findings will be reported anonymously to the Department for Transport. You can access the survey Privacy Notice, which explains the purposes for processing your data, your rights and the lawful basis under which it is collected here: Privacy Notice.
