Thousands of CV drivers gain FORS Safe Urban Driving standard02 June 2016

More than 23,000 drivers have now attended SUD (safe urban driving) courses organised by FORS (Fleet Operator recognition Scheme), while over 43,000 have trained on key aspects of driver safety and maintenance using FORS e-learning.

The CLOCS accreditation service says that thanks to TfL-funded FORS training courses and online learning, tens of thousands of drivers are now better equipped to tackle urban driving conditions safely.

It explains that the teaching is aimed at enabling commercial vehicle drivers to better cope with high volumes of vulnerable road users, including pedestrians and cyclists, increasingly common to urban areas and especially Greater London.

Safe urban driving training is also Driver CPC accredited and meets the requirement of the FORS Silver standard, the CLOCS standard and TfL’s Work Related Road Risk requirements.

In order to meet the FORS Standard companies are required to demonstrate that they have plans in place to ensure all drivers and managers undergo approved and progressive training.
