FORS: Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme

The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is a voluntary accreditation scheme encompassing all aspects of safety, fuel efficiency, vehicle emissions and improved operations. FORS helps fleet operators to measure, monitor performance and alter their operations in order to demonstrate best practice. It is open to all fleet operators that operate in the UK, and to the organisations that award contracts to those operators.

To help raise industry standards and support continuous improvement, FORS has developed a variety of training opportunities for both managers and drivers. FORS training forms a vital step in helping your organisation to operate with greater awareness of safety, as well as providing the knowledge and tools to help your organisation perform more efficiently.

Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (DCPC) 

FORS operators have unique access to FORS approved DCPC training, which is for any employee within your organisation requiring accreditation to become a professional driver. 

Safe Urban Driving

The Safe Urban Driving course focuses on vulnerable road users, including cyclists. This is the first accredited course in the UK to include practical on-road cycle training for drivers, and it counts towards the 35 hours of DCPC training that lorry drivers need to complete every 5 years. Attending this course helps drivers become better equipped to manage and reduce risk to vulnerable road users as well as meeting the driver training requirement needed for FORS Silver accreditation.

FORS e-learning modules are designed to offer drivers concise, accessible training on subjects including road safety, cycle safety, fuel and parking and loading legally
