DfT’s Strategic Bikeability Plan
TABS was consulted on the first draft of a strategic plan for the development of Bikeability. We have submitted our initial thoughts, and discussed these at a meeting with the DfT on 1st
DVSA consultation re driving test
The DVSA is currently consulting over changes to the driving test – see here
This is a good opportunity to ask that learner drivers be tested interacting with people on cycles (where these are present in the test location) and TABS is co-ordinating a response together with Cycling UK, British Cycling, London Cycling Campaign and Sustrans. We have also written to the AA, IAM and TfL who are reviewing our response. TABS draft response is here.
if you have comments, suggestions please email firstname.lastname@example.org
before 12th August.
Level 2 training session, Burnham-on-Crouch
Bikeability Plus training modules
Trumarcar Primary Y6 out training
TABS has been working on the development of instructor training modules for Bikeability Plus, in partnership with the Bikeability Support Team. Guidance and outcomes for trainees and instructors will be issued shortly by SDG. The CBD modules should then be available from September onwards.
DfT Evaluation Study of Bikeability 2016-2020
