DVSA Launch Information Portal for Riders
Today sees the launch of a new information portal created by The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) at Safedrivingforlife.info. The site offers tailored advice to existing and new riders giving practical help and advice to get on two wheels, and to existing riders.
With elements of the site specifically tailored to Motorcycles & Scooters, consideration is given to a variety of conditions, situations, manoeuvres and learnings, which are unique to Two Wheelers offering an informative platform underpinned by a government agency, with quality information and guidance, in plain English.
The website endeavours to provide advice to riders at whatever stage of the journey they are on, whether it’s novice riders to practice theory test questions using an advisory tool, which enables users to focus on areas they may not be confident with, or hazard perception clips to increase users’ awareness.
The site also offers guidance to riders looking to expand their riding knowledge via advanced rider training and the enhanced rider scheme.
Karen Cole, Director of Road Safety and Rider Training said, “The platform offers a selection of resources tailored to PTW users and novices, giving some excellent advice, direction and tools to make the journey on to two wheels as comprehensive, yet simple as possible. The inclusion of post-test training also shows DVSA share MCIA’s view that once a test is passed it should not signify the end of learning or training”.
