The Safe Urban Driving course focuses on vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, cyclist’s and motorcyclists but has a 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 by September 2019.

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: If drivers wish to have their details uploaded to the DVSA website so it counts towards 35 hours DCPC, and their employer does not have an agreement with Fleet Source Ltd to invoice directly, then they will need to ensure they have paid the upload fee of £9.95 at in advance of the course date. (£9.95 Upload fee is £8.75 ex.VAT plus £1 administration (which includes certificate) plus VAT).

Please note: Lunch, refreshments and travel costs are not included.

IMPORTANT: Any driver attending the SUD course must have their identity checked by either a photo card driving licence, or 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.
