Motor Vehicle and Road User Studies prepares students to become responsible road users. It gives students an opportunity to develop their interest in and appreciation of the motor vehicle. They discover the responsibilities of vehicle ownership and the legal requirements of being a road user. They explore motor vehicle and road user theory. They also have access to a moped to carry out a practical riding activity and investigate a real-life traffic situation.

Students develop knowledge of the Highway Code, including road user behaviour, road signs and markings and using appropriate signals. They learn about driving at night and under adverse conditions, as well as the causes and prevention of road traffic collisions. They investigate the legal requirements of driving and owning a vehicle. This includes learning about motor insurance, required documentation and what to do in the event of a collision.
