Accredited Driving Instructor Courses

In partnership with the Department of Transport, the Cycle Savvy Driving initiative ensures the safety of cyclists is at the forefront of the driving curriculum. We’re looking for Approved Driving Instructors to join this pilot programme to help improve the cyclists’ safety while sharing the roads with drivers.

NCA Academy, the premier provider of driving instructor training in Manchester, proudly leads in delivering this vital program. Our accredited driving instructors rank among the industry’s best. They wholeheartedly dedicate themselves to promoting road safety.

At NCA Academy we understand how much trust you put into your driving instructor. That’s why we only work with driving instructors who can demonstrate the the utmost levels of safety, responsibility and confidence. This ensures our customers have the best learning experience throughout their driving instructor course.

You can become one of 4000 approved driving instructors taking part in research to improve understanding and co-operation between people who drive and people who cycle.

By registering and completing the surveys, you can help to shape the future of shared road use. Completing the training will help you to gain valuable training to help you stand out from your competitors. All participants will be entered into a prize draw to win one of 5 Amazon vouchers, worth £100 each.

How It Works

This exciting pilot project offers free online and practical training for approved driving instructors, starting on 7 May 2021.
Upon registration, you will be randomly assigned to one of two groups:

  1. Control: Complete the baseline survey and then, simply wait! We’ll contact you over the next three months to complete another survey and you can access our online course from October 2021.
  2. Treatment: Complete the baseline survey and then choose to complete either the online learning or the on-cycle practical training course*. The training is free to attend and will take place over the next three months.
