ROAD SAFETY DRIVING TEST E-PETITION
Over 9,000 have already signed this e-petition for cycle awareness in driving tests
The driving theory test currently only has 'optional' cycling awareness questions
The practical driving test currently has 'no' specific focus
British Cycling supports the motoring organisations call for harder tests including making cycle awareness a core part of driver training with emphasis on how much space a cyclist needs and how to overtake a cyclist safely.
You can make this change happen with a few clicks and help stop people being needlessly killed or injured on our roads...
