Anglia Compliance and Training are delighted to have been granted Jaupt approval to Deliver the Highways England Smart Motorways course as a 7 hour CPC Course.
This course has been developed by Highways England, to support the logistics industry and engage with drivers on the benefits of using Smart motorway systems.
The motorway network can be a challenging environment for any driver given the speeds involved, the prevalence of signage and the behaviour of other road users, especially around Large Goods and Passenger Carrying Vehicles.
Also, congestion on the motorway and major road network in England costs an estimated £2 billion every year, with 25 per cent of this resulting from incidents. Smart motorways are a technology-driven approach to the use of our motorways.
One of the core aims of this course is to review and improve driving behaviour using defensive driving principles and compliance with motorway signs, signals, speed limits, red X markings and use of the hard shoulder.
