    Course overview

    This module looks at the urban environment, a common area of focus for many drivers concerned about keeping themselves and their families safe on the road.

    Urban roads present drivers with the most complex and diverse range of challenges, combining a multitude of junction layouts, road signs and traffic controls with a whole host of distractions and vulnerable road users. Even on a short journey through your hometown, you might encounter several different speed limits, two or three types of pedestrian crossings, a restricted bus lane and a one-way system. Perhaps your urban commute is very congested and features a host of cyclists, school-run traffic and under-pressure delivery vehicles. The opportunities for involvement in an incident are particularly frequent in towns and cities, with over 70% of road traffic incidents taking place on urban roads. 66% of those incidents are classed as serious.

    This module normally costs £5 for 20 minutes' learning, but is currently available free-of-charge as a special promotion. Click on the button below to register and download.
