After more than two years in development, Bicycle Colorado is proud to be launching SHIFT DrivingTM in the Summer of 2023. This brand new online driving education course focuses on filling the knowledge gaps seen in existing driving education, specifically on sharing the road safely with bicyclists and pedestrians.
By taking this course you are taking that important first step away from that autopilot, and carrying those skills as an informed and engaged driver.
Bicycle Colorado is focused on providing comprehensive education to advance the skills and safety of all riders across the state. However, we know that connecting with bicyclists is only half the equation, and vehicle drivers are responsible for safely sharing the road. Our previously driver-focused curriculum Bicycle Friendly Driver has been well received by our audiences, but being instructor-led has meant a limited ability to scale and reach new audiences. The clear pathway forward was to fully automate and digitize the course, making it available anytime and anywhere through a web browser-based platform. With the availability of SHIFT DrivingTM, we now have a unique opportunity to certify drivers of all ages across the state on the critical content needed to safely and confidently navigate alongside bicyclists and other vulnerable road users.

SHIFT DrivingTM is completely free. To align with our goals to make this course as accessible as possible, there is no charge for taking the course.
