Leading the way in Safe Urban Driver Training

Avanti and RideWise (part of the Big Wheel) are leading providers for Safe Urban Driver training in England. Together, we provide practical cycling awareness sessions for professional drivers across the UK.

This is an essential course for all professional drivers. Together we demonstrate why cyclists ride where they do on the roads, how drivers can reduce the possibility of accidents on the road and we look at common myths. We can guarantee that our attendees will come out of our course with a new-found appreciation of vulnerable road users, which is also essential for professional drivers and for the companies they work for.

Our training enables mutual understanding across all road users, to make cycling and driving safer, improve general road safety and to reduce accidents involving vulnerable users.

We provide drivers with a unique insight into the behavior and motivations of vulnerable road users, which has proven to be effective in reducing risk.

Sessions are led by Avanti and RideWise’s highly experienced cycle instructors that equip drivers with the knowledge, skills and techniques to safely deal with the challenge of sharing space in the urban environment. Simply put, your drivers will be demonstrably safer after training with us.

The course includes two classroom sessions and a practical on road module to get a cyclist’s view of the road, which is accompanied. In total, the training lasts for 7 hours and we can bring all the bikes and equipment you’ll need for safe learning.

Our Safe Urban Driving course is created in strict alignment with the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency’s Safer Road Strategy, 2017-2022 and with National Standards.

Our training can also be used in your formal CPD programme – and could help reduce insurance premiums.

Together we have trained over 10,000 across the UK and our prices are extremely competitive and our service is exemplary.
