FORS and Driver CPC Training
If you own a car and use it for normal, everyday tasks, the chances are you've never heard of FORS training or Driver CPC training. If you run a business that uses trucks, lorries, and vans, the chances are, you probably have.
What does FORS mean?
The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is an accreditation that aims to improve fleet activity throughout the UK for companies that wish to enhance the road safety awareness of their staff.
Put another way, FORS Training courses are Driver CPC accredited and meet the standard of compulsory periodic training for vocational drivers as well as complying with the FORS Standard for both drivers and operators.
What is Driver CPC Training?
Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (DCPC) training is designed to meet the standard of compulsory periodic training for vocational drivers with the emphasis on driver and operator compliance, environmental awareness to improve fuel efficiency, road safety with specific training regarding vulnerable road users and to promote vocational driving as a career within the UK and the EU.
