IMPORTANT: Any driver attending the Vansmart course must have their identity checked by either a photo card driving licence, or a Driver Qualification Card (DQC). This will allow FBG Training to register the driver onto the Transport for London master Vansmart database which confirms the driver has attended the course.
For a driver to be uploaded to the FORS/TfL register and/or be accredited with the Driver CPC hours they must complete the entire course. Generally, the only reasons for not taking part in the cycle element are on medical grounds, or if during the cycle familiarisation session, the driver is risk assessed as not safe to ride a bike on public roads – in these instances it is acceptable for the drivers to walk the course meeting up with the cyclists at the exercise/discussion points and joining in with the discussion.
