Vans currently account for 80% of all freight miles in London, with 10% of road traffic incidents involving a van. TfL in association with FORS are running a new training programme designed to improve Van Safety in London.
Van Smart, a fully accredited driver CPC training module, provided free of charge by FORS to members, is also DVSA approved.
The Van Smart training programme aims to reduce the work related road risk associated with van fleets, and improve urban driving skills.
The complete Van Smart package includes guidance documents for drivers and managers of van fleets, as well as a one-day driver training course, a driver handbook, eLearning module and toolkit for managers.
