Driver CPC Safe Urban Driving
1 Day Course - £85 Excl. VAT (Additional £8.75 Upload Fee Also Applies)
Who Should Attend
Our JAUPT Approved Driver CPC Safe Urban Driving training course, in conjunction with Tom Murray Professional Cycle Coaching, focuses on vulnerable road user such as pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists, with a particular focus on cyclists. An increase in population across cities and towns in the UK adds to the challenges and hazards of driving. To help improve road safety, Safe Urban Driving focuses on understanding how vulnerable road users behave and giving drivers a first hand experience of being a Vulnerable Road User. The course includes a practical on-road cycle training element and gives Drivers a real life experience as to a cyclist's perspective of riding in urban environments, as well as in traffic. The training also counts towards the required 35 hours Driver CPC which all professional Drivers must complete.
The course meets the FORS requirements and any other contractual requirements such as TfL's Work Related Road Risk (WRRR) and CLOCS requirements. Your drivers will be registered with FORS as having completed Safe Urban Driving.
