The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has produced a series of new videos to encourage learner drivers to be more aware of motorcyclists.

The videos have been made with the help of road safety campaigner and keen biker Ria Brisland, and will become part of DVSAís official learning materials and education products. The videos are designed to help improve the safety of motorcyclists, by encouraging learner drivers to be more aware of them when driving.

In 2017, motorcyclists accounted for 19% of all deaths of Great Britainís roads, despite only making up around 1% of all road traffic.

During the year, 2,656 motorcyclists were involved in accidents resulting from a driver or rider failing to look properly. This was 17% of all accidents involving motorcycles.

DVSA says it is vital that all drivers know how to spot motorcyclists and other vulnerable road users and take appropriate action. This is particularly important for learners, which is why the clips are being made part of the learning materials.

The videos show how easily motorcyclists can be missed by road users, resulting in tragic consequences.
