Overview

This is a 7hr JAUPT Accredited CPC course.  The Practical Cycle Awareness Training is based upon the Safe Urban Driving course that forms a mandatory CPC requirement of the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS).  

The aims of the course are to make drivers aware of the risks that people on bikes experience on the road, to understand cyclists behaviour and anticipate how they ride. 

Practical Cycle Awareness Training is made up of two modules - a 3.5hr practical module and a 3.5hr theory module on vulnerable road users.  PCAT counts for 7hrs of Driver CPC.  The practical session is aimed at new and returning cyclists with no prior skill required.
