Welcome to the Road Safety Team, a small group of professionals whose aim is to develop and deliver a series of road safety programmes and initiatives for all road users who live or work in Neath Port Talbot.
You'll all be familiar with our School Crossing Patrol Officers who serve our communities come rain or shine ensuring pupils and adults alike are safe on their journey at the start and end of the school day.
Our dedicated educationalists work tirelessly within our schools and colleges, with our Cyclecraft and Kerbcraft trainers a familiar sight around the Borough with their bright yellow jackets carrying out on-road training, supported by a raft of curriculum linked materials ensuring continued learning in the classroom.
Young people who wish to prepare for learning to drive are encouraged to participate in the Drive IQ online learning tool to develop their knowledge and understanding in preparation for the theory test, continuing with their coaching to the point of license acquisition before partaking in our Pass Plus Cymru initiative.
Those more experienced drivers/riders are catered for by our Bikesafe and Refresher Driver training initiatives alongside our professional drivers who partake in Safe and Fuel Efficient Driving (SAFED), CPC training, or our tailored programmes specifically designed with the individuals needs in mind.
Based on current best practice emerging from Welsh Government and Dept for Transport our programmes ensure that the most relevant information is passed expediently to all.
