Van Smart

Van Smart aims to reduce work-related road risks, improve safety and create long-term behavioural change in the van sector.

The course covers vital training for drivers. Most van drivers are hard-working, reliable and dedicated individuals who look after their vans and are proud of their driving skills, sharing the road successfully with other users. However, due to the busy nature of van driving roles, it is all too easy for some to forget the risks they may pose to themselves and vulnerable road users like cyclists and pedestrians.

Van Smart is Driver CPC accredited and fully aligned to meet the requirements of:

  • Work Related Road Risk (WRRR)
  • Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) Silver
  • Construction Logistics & Cyclist Safety (CLOCS)

Van Smart is split into two sections, theory and practical (on-bike). Both sections combined count as a single day of Driver CPC training.
