Drivers complete Safe Urban Driver course

FORS fleet operator recognition schemeAll of our drivers have recently completed the FORS Safe Urban Driving Course. This involves drivers swapping places with Cyclists for 3 hours to give them a better understanding of the problems that cyclists have with HGV’s.

This is also an important part of planned progression to FORS Silver.
