Arrive Alive Road Safety Programme

The Driving Standards Agency is dedicated to influencing young people's attitudes towards road safety by providing free presentations to schools, armed forces and young offenders institutions.

The Arrive Alive Road Safety Programme

The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) is dedicated to influencing young people's attitudes towards road safety, learning to drive and passing the driving test.

DSA aims to do this by discussing important road safety issues in an informed environment. The award-winning Arrive Alive Road Safety Programme presentation has been designed to meet this aim and is delivered to a variety of organisations including schools and colleges, young offenders units, prisons and other youth groups within the 16-19 target age range.

DSA provides five different styles and levels of presentations, which are flexible depending upon your needs and the needs of your groups.

  • module one for schools and colleges
  • module two for young offenders
  • module three for prisons
  • Arrive Alive Motorbike
  • You Can Drive Too

Arrive Alive Motorbike

DSA is dedicated to influencing young people's attitudes to learning to ride and passing the motorcycle test. DSA do not wish to either persuade or dissuade young people to ride motorcycles, but we do recognise that an increasing number of young people are turning to motorcycles and scooters as a more cost effective means of transport as well as for pleasure.

The presentation focuses on the vulnerability of the new, young rider and also includes a section on pillion passenger responsibility. During the presentation DSA offer advice on hazard awareness, planning, anticipation of other road users and the importance of 'see and be seen'.

You Can Drive Too

This presentation addresses the essential road safety messages contained in Arrive Alive module one, which is of benefit to all young drivers. However, You Can Drive Too also focuses on mobility issues associated with young drivers who are considering learning, or in the process of learning to drive.

Effectiveness of the Arrive Alive programme

Currently this road safety message is delivered over 5000 times per year and reaches about 50,000 students.

An independent evaluation of the programme carried out by BITER (The British Institute of Traffic Education Research) confirmed that the overall impact was very positive and the content was relevant to the age group targeted.
