FORS: Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme

The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is a voluntary accreditation scheme that focuses on safety, operational efficiency and the environment. FORS helps fleet operators to measure and monitor their operational performance and to demonstrate best practice. It is open to all fleet operators in the UK and abroad.


CILT is part of the FORS Community Partnership (FCP). The FCP operate the scheme as a concession on behalf of Transport for London. Our role is to manage and run the governance process, which includes stakeholders and operators coming together on a regular basis to provide guidance on how the scheme should evolve. We also maintain the FORS Standard, which sets out the requirements that operators need to meet in order to gain accreditation. The FORS Standard is updated every two years to reflect changes in the fleet industry. 

FORS Professional Training

To help raise industry standards and support continuous improvement, FORS has developed award-winning training for managers and drivers. FORS training is a vital step in helping fleet operators to work with a greater awareness of safety, efficiency and the environment, and provides the knowledge and tools to help meet the accreditation requirements. CILT helps to deliver many of these vital courses. To find out about the courses available click here or to book onto a course click here
