Safe Urban Driver Training with RideWise
RideWise run regular Safe Urban Driving awareness sessions for HGV drivers as part of their compulsory Safe Urban Driving courses and have also recently adapted the course for driving instructors and learner drivers.
The courses can be delivered on client premises across the region or in Lenton, Nottingham - which is where RideWise are based. These courses provide valuable training for all and particularly learner drivers to increase safety and confidence on the roads alongside cyclists.
Paul Goddard, a recent course participant who wanted to ensure that he was able to drive safely alongside cyclists, said:
"I found the Safe Urban Driving session with RideWise very useful; it is a progressive approach for both learners and those who have just passed their tests.
I found it insightful to get a different view of cyclists and the difficulties they encounter on the road. I was particularly interested in the use of primary position and actually enjoyed being out on a bike again.
Both the instructor and the other learner were very approachable and I learned a lot about cycling from both of them; especially about how the poor condition of roads and shared pedestrian/ cycle ways can impact on a cyclists balance. The course also highlighted how bad practice and poor positioning from untrained cyclists can make them unpredictable.
I will certainly be more patient and considerate towards all cyclists and I thoroughly recommend it for all learner drivers."
