As the leading training provider for Vulnerable road user, on-cycle training, namely Safe Urban Driving and Van Smart, Fleet Source have trained a total of 12,959 (and rising) drivers on these courses to date.
The Safe Urban Driving and Van Smart courses were developed by Transport for London due to the ever-increasing number of cyclists, pedestrians and motorcyclists sharing the roads.
It became essential that HGV and PSV drivers understood and could operate safely and reduce the risks of driving in today’s busy environments.
