FORS Safe Urban Driving

 Safe Urban Driving (SUD)

Essential training for all commercial drivers operating HGVs regularly in the urban environment and where there are high volumes of vulnerable road users, such as cyclists and pedestrians.  SUD Training is Driver CPC accredited and fully aligned to meet the requirements of:

·   Work Related Road Risk (WRRR)

·   Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) Silver level

·   Construction Logistics & Cyclist Safety (CLOCS) Standard

The objectives of the course are for HGV Drivers to gain an understanding of:

  • how and why city roads are changing to accommodate active travel, such as walking and cycling
  • How to identify the most vulnerable road users (VRUs) and how they interact with traffic
  • How to share the roads safely with others by applying defensive driving techniques
  • the safe use and limitations of supplementary vehicle safety equipment and how to maintain its effectiveness

As part of the course they will also gain first-hand experience as a VRU, through on-cycle hazard awareness, and recognise why cyclists behave the way they do

SUD is delivered in two sections, a classroom theory module and a practical cycling module, where drivers experience a cyclist’s view of the road. The two modules are delivered on the same day.
