Highway Code Changes 2022 – What You Need to Know

£15.00 +VAT

The Drivers and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) introduced several changes to driving law in 2022. Whilst these changes are likely behaviours that good drivers already follow, it is important to be aware of them.

This online training programme takes a look at the changes that were introduced, which involved a hierarchy of road users, changes for how drivers should respond to pedestrians and cyclists, and mobile phone use. Having a clear understanding of these driving techniques will help drivers remember how to drive safely and legally.

Highway Code Changes 2022 Training Outline

This online course comprises the following sections:

  • Hierarchy of road users
  • Enhanced priorities for pedestrians
  • Cyclists
  • Parking
  • Mobile phone use

Learning Outcomes

By taking this online training, users will have a greater awareness of:

  • New hierarchy of road users to keep the roads safe for all
  • New rules for pedestrians at crossings and junctions
  • Changes to the road rules that relate to cyclists
  • Changes to road rules in relation to parking
  • Changes in road rules in respect to mobile phones

Why this Training is Vital

Work-related road accidents are the primary cause of preventable deaths and injuries. It is estimated that a third of all road accidents involve a person who is at work at the time. This accounts for over 20 fatalities and around 200 serious injuries every week as per the Health and Safety Executive.

Updates to the Highway code address the dangers road travel presents to pedestrians, cyclists and drivers. Unfortunately, very few drivers and pedestrians understand the highway code to the degree that they should.

Moreover, employers have a clear responsibility under the Health and Safety at Work Act and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations for managing occupational road risks as a part of their broader management duties.
