D4 Driver training requirements

D4 Driver training requirements

In order to meet the requirements of FORS ‘D4 Professional development’, it is mandatory for drivers to undertake a safety related FORS eLearning module every 12 months. This ensures that all relevant staff have the appropriate knowledge, skills and attributes to conduct their duties legally, safely and professionally.

However, where drivers have attended FORS approved classroom vulnerable road user training in the last 12 months, there is no need to undertake a safety eLearning module.

FORS approved classroom vulnerable road user training currently includes Safe Urban Driving, Van Smart and any classroom based vulnerable road user training that has been approved by FORS and listed on the FORS website.

Cycle Safety, Van Smart and Smart Driving are the current safety related FORS eLearning modules covering safe driving that satisfy the FORS D4 eLearning requirement. To find out more about all FORS eLearning modules, please click here.
