As an approved FORS Associate member the team at Chartwise can assist in a number of ways. Our lead FORS consultant is also an official FORS auditor and therefore knows exactly what it takes to get you accredited. Our instructors are experienced both in the classroom and out on the road as LGV driving instructors and our cycling instructors all hold the required Bikeability qualifications.
Our FORS Assist packages are customised to your specific requirements from a simple GAP analysis audit and guidance to full assistance, policy and handbook development and a presence on the day of your official FORS audit. For more information check out our FORS Assist service.
Continuous Driver and Management Training is a key element in the FORS standard. By far our most popular course is the FORS Safe Urban Driving Course which is also JAUPT approved and counts as 7 hours towards the Driver CPC Qualification.
