Driver education for safer roads

In 2018, Cycling UK’s Too Close For Comfort campaign enabled police forces nationwide to carry out operations and deliver education to help tackle dangerous close overtaking. Since then, we’ve become leaders in the field, and expanded our work with police, local authorities and driving schools to improve driving around cyclists.

Driver education hub: our resources for road safety professionals

Our award-winning driver educational initiatives help address many dangerous driving habits which put cyclists at risk and are suitable for both experienced and learner drivers, such as our ‘Dutch Reach’ film.

All of our materials are available for free to road safety professionals, employers, local campaigners, anyone who wants to help make our roads safer for cycling.

The Dutch Reach #TeachTheReach!

All of our materials are freely available to police and we have successfully crowdfunded to provide police forces nationwide with Close Pass Mats and virtual reality headsets to assist in the delivery of roadside education.

If you need more information, assistance or advice on using these materials, or you wish to order materials for printing or a Close Pass Mat, please contact
