I was riding along in the centre of a bus lane when an AA Driving School car with instructor and pupil turned left across my path and then stopped in my path to let some people cross the side road.
No harm done, I could see from their mirrors and the way the car was moving that they hadn't looked and weren't intending to stop so I had evasive manoeuvres planned and executed.
However, it's not good practice, it's contrary to the Highway Code, and FFS at least introduce learner drivers to the concept of sharing the road with cyclists.
I took the registration, time, place, date, colour/make of car, people in the car, weather conditions, road conditions and I complained to the AA Driving School complaints department.
Their reply came by hard copy letter, recorded delivery. They apologised, said they had spoken to the instructor in question, and that my complaint would stay on his file and be looked at when his franchise came to be renewed.
Brickbat to the instructor: bouquet to the organisation.
