About this Event

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 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

COSTS:

This training is funded by FORS and therefore there is no attendance cost to FORS members. However if drivers wish to have their details uploaded to the DVSA website so its counts towards their 35 hours Driver CPC, then they need to pay £9.95 to DriveTech. You will need to contact DriveTech to make payment over the phone using a debit or credit card.

(£9.95 Upload fee is £8.75 ex.VAT plus £1 administration (which includes certificate) plus VAT).

Please note: Lunch and travel costs are not included.

IMPORTANT: Any driver attending this course must have their identity checked by either a photo card driving licence, or a Driver Qualification Card (DQC). This will allow Drive Tech to register the driver onto the FORS Professional training register to confirm the driver has attended the course.

In order for a driver to be uploaded to the FORS Professional training register and/or be accredited with the Driver CPC hours they must complete the entire course. Generally, the only reasons for not taking part in the cycle element are on medical grounds, or if during the cycle familiarisation session, the driver is risk assessed as not safe to ride a bike on public roads – in these instances it is acceptable for the drivers to walk the course meeting up with the cyclists at the exercise/discussion points and joining in with the discussion.
