Telford-based TTC Cycling has been appointed to help educate more than 25,000 HGV and commercial vehicle drivers across the UK.

It has been chosen by Fleet Source to be the sole provider of the on-road practical training element of its Vulnerable Road User driver training programmes.

The courses are Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (Driver CPC) accredited and are designed to give professional drivers a greater understanding and awareness of cyclists and their behaviour on the roads.

Oliver Raisbeck, director at TTC Cycling, said: "For the past five years, Fleet Source has been using a number of providers for Vulnerable Road User DCPC practical training, but wanted to appoint a single company who was large enough to cope with the volume of courses and deliver consistently excellent training.

"We put forward a bid which focused on our proven track record, a wide pool of experienced trainers and the ability to apply theory to real-life practical experience. 

"Our business thrives on educating people to be safer on our roads, helping them to understand different behaviour and ultimately helping to reduce accidents."

It covers 3.5 hours of classroom theory, followed by 3.5 hours of practical road experience where attendees will be given a bike and encouraged to take the place of a vulnerable road user in a variety of situations.

More than 1,200 training days are due to be held at independent venues or on site at companies, with the firm currently recruiting National Standard Qualified instructors to help meet the additional demand for their services.

TTC Group acquired Cycling Experience in 2014 ago as part of ambitions to expand its training into new specialist areas.

In the four years that have followed the company has won contracts to deliver cycle training to the general public, local authorities, other public sector bodies and commercial organisations.

The courses range from cycling promotion events and cycle training programmes, through to delivering National Standard cycle training.
