New platform moves Roadcraft into digital age
The Police Foundation’s two ‘iconic’ road safety instruction manuals - Roadcraft and Motorcycle Roadcraft - are now available via a new e-learning platform.
The new e-learning platform allows the emergency services and civilian driving instructors to access both reference titles ‘at any time and from anywhere’.
The Roadcraft reference publications - developed in consultation with the police, other emergency services and driving instructors and published by The Stationery Office - provide guidance on becoming a better driver or rider.
The new e-learning platform contains all the guidance and reference material from the two books, split into 13 sections to mirror the chapters in the book.
The e-learning platform also contains videos which demonstrate key manoeuvres including limit points and overtaking.
Rick Muir, director of the Police Foundation, said: “The Roadcraft handbooks are recognised as providing the very best in driver and rider training for anyone who wants to take their skills to a higher level.
“This entirely new Roadcraft product offers a user-interactive solution for more dynamic learning.
“Prepared through extensive consultation with experts, it will make a significant contribution to improved road safety and help users become safer and more skilful on the road.”
