Event description
Safe Urban Driving (SUD) is essential training for all commercial drivers operating HGVs regularly in the urban environment.

About this Event

Safe Urban Driving (SUD) is 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

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, and courses are run around the country by a number of training providers.

This course is DCPC approved and runs for seven hours in accordance with periodic training regulations. Drivers attending this course will need to be physically able to ride a bicycle in order to complete the course and receive a certificate.

Theory content:

• The changing streetscape and the urban environment

• Vulnerable road users and sharing the road safely

• Defensive driving techniques and understand vehicle safety equipment and how to maintain its effectiveness

Practical content:

• Exchanging places, driver attitude and perception

• Introduction to active travel, driver fitness and health

• Hazard recognition: understanding the issues faced by vulnerable road users

COSTS:

This training is funded by TFL 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.
