Safe Urban Driving Course

Nolan Transport & JRT Truck Drivers during training for Safe Urban Driving course that was done at out Bridgend depot in September 2018.


With the ever increasing number of cyclists, pedestrians and motorcyclists on our roads, it is essential that HGV and PSV drivers understand and are able to operate safely and reduce the risks of driving in today's busy urban environments.

The Safe Urban Driving course focuses on how fleet drivers share our cities' streets safely with the most vulnerable road users. There is a particular emphasis in the course on cyclists and includes a practical 'on-road' cycle training module to give drivers a 'real life' experience of a cyclist's perspective.
