Event Details

Transport for London logo

This Safe Urban Driving course is designed for HGV Drivers, also covering bus and coach drivers.

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

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 cyclists 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


IMPORTANT: Any driver attending the SUD course must have their identity checked by  a Driver Qualification Card (DQC).  This will allow Fleet Source to register the driver onto the Transport for London master SUD database which confirms the driver has attended the course.

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. 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.

If it is found your company is not FORS accredited, you may be billed for attendance at £75.00 + vat.

IMPORTANT - CANCELLATION POLICY: If you need to cancel your place/s on the SUD course, please do so at least 14 WORKING DAYS before your course date to avoid charges. Click here to read the full Cancellation Policy
