Van Smart is a Transport for London (TfL) backed driver training programme that aims to reduce work related road risks, improve safety and create long-term behavioural change in the van sector.

The course is delivered in two sections comprising of a 3.5 hour classroom theory module and a 3.5 hour practical cycling module, where van drivers experience a cyclist’s view of the road, with both modules delivered on the same day.

The course meets the requirements of Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (DCPC) and is JAUPT approved as a 7 hour credit towards DVSA Periodic Training.  If you require 7 hours to be uploaded to the DVSA database a payment of £8.75 is required on the day. 

Van Smart Training is DCPC accredited and fully aligned to meet the requirements of:
