new videos teach learner drivers about bike awareness

Learner drivers are to be taught bike awareness in a series of realistic computer-generated (CGI) videos produced for the DVSA with the help of a road safety campaigner whose son was killed in a motorcycle accident. Ria Brisland, whose 19-year-old son Nick was killed in a collision between his motorcycle and a car, says the videos “may prove the difference between life and death”.

The videos show the view from the driver’s seat of a car and will become part of DVSA’s official learning materials and education products. The films are intended to help to improve the safety of motorcyclists by encouraging learner drivers to be more aware of them when driving. They will not be part of the theory test.

Ria said: “Getting everyone to be aware of their fellow road users at all times is essential if we are to prevent collisions and the devastating consequences they can have on families. These new clips are thought-provoking and will make a difference to the way people look for bikers. They may prove the difference between life and death.”
