With urban driving accounting for almost three quarters of all collisions, the risks associated with driving in these areas are very high. Drivers who regularly travel in city centres face increased risk of being involved in an incident with other vehicles and vulnerable road users.

The 3.5 hour module covers all the relevant details a driver needs to know when driving in heavy city traffic, including:
The main objectives of the module are to identify safe, efficient and reliable movement of goods in a city environment and to highlight different situations that a driver could face – along with how to deal with them effectively. Drivers will also understand defensive driving in urban areas and how to observe more successfully.
