Process

Roadcraft: The Police Driver’s Handbook and Motorcycle Roadcraft: The Police Rider’s Handbook are produced following sustained consultation with experts in the theory and practice of advanced driving.

A Standing Advisory Board consisting of representatives from major police and civilian driving organisations, supported by a dedicated group of Reflective Practitioners from the police driving schools, fire and rescue and ambulance services help to ensure the handbooks are fully revised to:

  • Reflect the latest legal, technological, economic, behavioural and environmental changes.
  • Reflect the needs of other emergency services (such as the use of larger vehicles).
  • Align with Driving Standards Agency (DSA) and European Standards.
  • Incorporate a modular format to reflect the College of Policing Driver Training Learning Programme descriptors.

The Standing Advisory Board and Reflective Practitioners' contributions to the editorial and updating process have been invaluable.
