Help make Colorado’s urban, rural and mountain roads safer for all.
Become a certified Bicycle-Friendly Driver!
Our Bicycle-Friendly Driver program is designed to teach all drivers the best ways to share the road with people riding bicycles. The 1.5-hour, interactive class covers the following topics:
Common causes of crashes between motorists and bicyclists and how to avoid them
Legal and illegal behavior for motorists and bicyclists
How to navigate on-street bicycle infrastructure like shared lanes, bike lanes and green paint
Why sharing the road is often the safest option for both motorists and bicyclists
Upon successful completion of the class, participants will receive a Bicycle-Friendly Driver certificate and sticker to display on their vehicle.

Testimonials from Bicycle Colorado’s certified motorists:
All drivers need to take this class! This should be mandatory.
As a driver, motorcyclist and bicyclist, there was a lot of new information that everyone should know.
Very informative, addressed all topics and provided information that I didn’t know about traffic laws.
I have decades of bicycling experience both work related and personal riding… I took the test before the class and did not ace it.
