Event description

Description

This course is approved by TFL, and is delivered in a uniformed manner by all training providers. The power points, student packs and practical section are identical, delivered to the same standard to meet the Silver FORS criteria and WRRR. We can deliver this course from our dedicated site in Northampton. We also offer on-site training please contact the team for details and pricing.

Safe Urban Driving is aimed at giving drivers education on vulnerable road user awareness. The main focus is to reduce fatalities surrounding cyclists but this course gives a broad over view of other vulnerable road users who are at risk from large goods vehicles. The course is split in two with a theory session and a practical hands on cycling element. Not only do you learn about the everyday hazards a driver will experience but you will also get a real life perspective of being a cyclist.

Theory lesson (3.5 Hours)
This section of the course focuses on the risks and hazards of driving a large goods vehicle in UK cities. Gets you to think about how your actions impact on road safety. Helps you to share the road safely with pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclist and other vulnerable road users. Describes city growth, the increase in walking and cycling and changes to urban designs. We look at other types of vulnerable road users, places where there is a high concentration of them and why they are unaware of you. Signalling, positioning, eye contact and defensive driving. Safety equipment, technology and what makes a professional driver.

Practical lesson (3.5 Hours)
This section of the day follows the National Standard for Bike Ability Cycle Training. The older version was the Cycling Proficiency which has now been revamped and brought up to date. The lesson is split in to three sections bronze, silver and gold. Any student who is unable to ride due to medical issues will be permitted to walk the route to the learning points, but must participate in discussions and observations. The bronze and silver levels are held in a controlled environment to ensure student meet a set criteria before the gold level. The gold level must be held on a road used by large goods vehicles with a speed limit of at least 30mph. If a student is not deemed to be safe on the gold section they will also have to walk the course to the learning point locations.
