Highway Code and Speed Awareness

Highway Code and Speed Awareness Module - Duration 3.5 Hours

JAUPT Approved CPC Driver Training Course CRS9438/259

The session is a useful reminder that the Highway Code is a vital tool for every road user and that it is constantly under review and is updated to reflect changes in the UK road system and the way it is used.

The session begins with a brief quiz to test current knowledge and to highlight some of the changes that may have taken place since the driver last read the Highway Code. It then reviews the history of the Code and how it has developed over the years and examines the relevance to today’s road users. The main changes introduced in recent years will be outlined including new road signs and markings, motorway rules including the use of “Smart Motorways” and restrictions on goods & passenger vehicles.

The second part of the module looks at the need for speed limits and, in particular, the protection the give to vulnerable road users. It introduces the use of variable speed limits on motorways, at road works and in the vicinity of schools at particular times of day.

Driver behaviour is discussed and typical driver profiles are examined to see why some people speed. The effect of speed on the dynamics of a collision is explored to demonstrate how the outcome is influenced by speed.

The session concludes with a knowledge check quiz.
