BikeRight! has diversified into driver training, with a specific module for operators of LGV and PCV drivers, with a focus on driving around cyclists.

The seven hour course will be offered at any one of BikeRight's four offices, found in Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham or Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.

Colin Unsworth, course instructor, comments: “These courses provide a unique insight into the behaviour of vulnerable road users and complement BikeRight!s portfolio of cyclist training courses that we have successfully run for over ten years.“

 “This full-day CPC course offers the opportunity to gain practical experience of cycling on the roads accompanied by BikeRight! qualified instructors. This helps trainees to define who vulnerable road users are when assessing risk and to raise awareness of cyclists and how to assess a situation to reduce risk.”

A second course called 2WheelsAware is aimed at people who drive as part of their work, such as delivery drivers, taxi drivers, drivers of smaller lorries, mini-buses, and emergency services vehicles. 

This IMI Awards QAA certified course is designed to equip drivers with the skills to deal with today’s roads and make them better able to safely share those spaces with vulnerable road users.

BikeRight! founder Liz Clarke earlier this year won an E3 award for 'oustanding women in business.
