The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has launched a selection of videos to encourage learner drivers to be more aware of motorcyclists.
The realistic computer-generated (CGI) videos have been created to encourage learner drivers to be more aware of motorcyclists. They’ve been made with the help of road safety campaigner and keen biker Ria Brisland.
The videos will become part of DVSA’s official learning materials and education products. They will help to improve the safety of motorcyclists, by encouraging learner drivers to be more aware of them when driving.
The videos will not be part of the theory test.
In 2017, motorcyclists accounted for 19% of all deaths of Great Britain’s roads, despite only making up around 1% of all road traffic.
During the year, 2,656 motorcyclists were involved in accidents resulting from a driver or rider failing to look properly. This was 17% of all accidents involving motorcycles.
