Today (4 June 2019) marks one year since the rules changed to allow learner drivers to practice driving on motorways, with a driving instructor. Mark Winn shares the thoughts of some ADI's who've taken learners on the motorway.
Mark Winn is DVSA's Chief Driving Examiner. He is responsible for influencing policy development of driving, riding and road safety standards. He is also accountable for the technical development, accreditation, standard and quality of driving and riding tests.
Mark Winn, Head of Rider and Vocational Policy, explains what changes we'll be making to improve the trainer booking system.
Last year, we ran two workshops in Nottingham and Cardington to see what changes we could make to improve the motorcycle and vocational trainer booking service. We'd like your feedback to help us develop the ideas you gave us in the workshops.
Last year, between 30 December 2016 and the 17 February 2017 we held a consultation on proposals to improve the way that motorcycle training works in Great Britain. I wanted to go through each of the proposals, the level of support received for each proposal and explain how we’re going to progress these.
Earlier this year the Metropolitan Police launched a campaign to advise riders on how to keep their scooters safe, by using things like security chains when locking up your bike. I wanted to share some of their messages with you so you can help your pupils keep their motorcycle safe and secure.
At the end of December 2016, Mark Winn, DVSA's Head of Motorcycling Policy, took a detailed look at our proposals to improve moped and motorcycle training. Since then, we've received 1,690 responses to the consultation.
We've launched a consultation today (30 December 2016) on proposals to improve the way that motorcycle training works in Great Britain.
The start of spring usually means the start of a new motorcycling season. So I thought this would be a good time to share my thoughts on DVSA’s upcoming motorcycling activities.
Since my previous blog, we’ve now completed our roadshows, so I want to give you an update on what was discussed and answer the questions that were raised at the ten locations across the country.
Last year, we commissioned research to look at how we can improve compulsory basic training (CBT). The main aim is to have courses that better prepare learner riders to ride safely on public roads.
