Safe Urban Driving (Non-Cycling)
This Safe Urban Driving (Non-Cycling) course has been designed for delegates that are not medically or physically capable of riding a bike.
The Safe Urban Driving course focuses on vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, cyclist’s and motorcyclists but has a particular focus on cyclists. This course has been designed as a bespoke course for non-cycling delegates. The course includes a theoretical ‘on-road’ cycle training element and gives delegates an insight from 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 is classroom based cycle theory training, where delegates get a cyclists’ view of the road.
Safe Urban Driving 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
Cycle Theory Module (3.5 hours)
This Module will focus on the theoretical aspect of sharing the road safely and additionally highlight the vulnerability of other road users. After the road safety theory training, delegates are introduced to areas of potential vulnerability and conflict.
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.
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.
