DESCRIPTION

The Safe Urban Driving course focuses on vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, cyclist’s and motorcyclists but has a focus on cyclists. 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 on busy roads, as well as in traffic. The training also counts towards the 35 hours DCPC that professional drivers need to complete by September 2019.

The course consists of two 3.5-hour modules (both delivered on the same day); the first module is classroom-based theory, and the second module, an outdoor practical session where drivers get a cyclist view of the road.

Theory Module (3.5 hours)

This part of the course focuses on sharing the road safely and highlights the vulnerability of other road users. It also explains how the London streetscape is evolving to encourage more walking and cycling. Subjects covered include: -

The driver’s role in the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS)

Urban driving, changing streetscape and route planning

Vulnerable road users: pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists

Sharing the road, observation devices and cycle training

Collision avoidance and defensive driving

Hazard recognition and perception

Driver responsibility and attitude

Practical Module (3.5 hours)

After the initial bicycle control skills training, drivers ride on bikes to areas of potential conflict including junctions, traffic lights and Advanced Stop Lines. Subjects covered include: -

Introducing active travel, driver fitness and health

Giving drivers a cyclist’s perspective of riding on busy roads and an understanding

of the issues faced by vulnerable road users

Recognising best driving practice around cyclists

Practical on road experience at areas of potential driver/cyclist conflict including

junctions, traffic lights and Advanced Stop Lines

*Be prepared have suitable clothing, water, sun cream for the weather conditions on the day

Costs

IMPORTANT: If drivers wish to have their details uploaded to the DSA website so its counts towards their 35 hours DCPC, then they need to ensure they bring £8.75 cash to cover the upload fee. You will need to notify the trainer on the day.

Please note: Lunch and travel costs are not included. However refreshments such as tea,coffee and water are available.

IMPORTANT: Any driver attending the course must have their identity checked by either a photo card driving licence, Operator card or a Driver Qualification Card (DQC). This will allow FBG Training to register the driver onto the Transport for London master SUD database which confirms the driver has attended the course.

(Registration is at 6.30am-7.00am) It is your responsibility to ensure you plan your journey in advance. If you do not attend there will be no refund of your course fee. If you turn up after the course has started you will be refused entry and any rebooking will be subject to a full rebooking fee.

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. 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.

All bookings are subject to our Cancellation Policy and by registering for a course you are agreeing to its terms. Email info@fbgtraining.com for cancellation policy.
