FORS Approved LoCITY Training

About this Event

More than 281,000 daily journeys are freight (HGV and vans) – that’s 30% of all central London traffic and 10% of all Greater London traffic. With transport accounting for 63% of NO2 (Nitrogen Dioxide) and 52% of PM10 (Particulate Matter) emissions, the two principle pollutants of concern in London, it is vital that we take action to reduce emissions.

LoCITY has been established to help mitigate these effects and reduce commercial vehicle emissions. It offers a unique opportunity for vehicle manufacturers, fuel infrastructure providers, procurers and commercial fleet operators to collaborate to ensure we have the right technology, the right vehicles and the right fuels in the right places. LoCITY will showcase match-funded demonstration projects and will work with other organisations to ensure the commercial fleet sector gets its fair share of funding.

LoCITY Driving is a classroom-based course that focuses on minimising the environmental impact of vans and HGVs by reducing emissions through the use of pre-journey planning and vehicle checks, fuel-efficient driving, and alternative fuels. The seven-hour CPC-accredited course which is aimed at drivers gives attendees the knowledge and skills needed to cut costs and minimise the environmental impact of fleet operations.

The LoCITY Driving course was also the recipient of the prestigious Education in Transport award at the 2017 National Courier Awards for “demonstrating a commitment to education for the advancement of those working in the express industry”.

The course covers the following topics:

• The relationship between driving style, fuel consumption and environmental impact

• How regular maintenance and vehicle checks can cut costs and emissions

• Fuel efficient driving techniques

• Use of in-vehicle technology to improve fuel economy

• Benefits of journey planning

• Alternative fuels in commercial vehicles

LoCITY Driving is accredited for delivery as part of the FORS Professional Driver Training programme and qualifies as 7 hours towards the 35-hour requirement for Driver CPC Training

Please note: Lunch and travel costs are not included unless arranged with the centre in advance but tea, coffee and light refreshments at all breaks.

IMPORTANT: All Drivers attending the course must provide an acceptable form of proof of their identity in terms of the following;

• a photo card driving licence

• a Driver Qualification Card (DQC).

• a valid paper licence accompanied by a valid passport

The requirement to provide an acceptable form of identification must be met to allow Us to register the driver onto both the TfL’s ‘FORS Trained Driver’ database and the DVSA’s Driver CPC Register to confirm attendance with both organisations

In order for a driver to be uploaded to the FORS/TfL register and/or be accredited with the Driver CPC hours they must complete the entire course.

All bookings are subject to our Cancellation Policy and by registering for a course you are agreeing to its terms.
