A one day course providing information and techniques to operate safely on busy urban roads.

Benefits of SUD training:

An increase in population across cities and towns in the UK adds to the challenges and hazards of driving.  To help improve road safety, SUD focuses on understanding how vulnerable road users behave and giving drivers a first hand experience of being a VRU.
