FTA Van Excellence - Driver Certificate of Competence

The guide to FTA Van Excellence is a course designed for companies and organisations that operate vans and committed to raising standards across the logistics cycle.

Van drivers are vital to the UK economy in every way imaginable. We all ‘need’ vans but not everyone ‘loves’ vans. Indeed there is much debate about the way they are driven and their impact on congestion. It is against this background that a number of Van Excellence accredited Operators have created meaningful training standards by which the entire industry can be measured. The aim is to raise standards of van operations, large and small, and to improve the van industry image by setting good examples.

The FTA Van Excellence training courses will benefit you from:

  • An excellent standard of industry recognised training
  • Training delivered by industry experts
  • An industry-recognised accreditation scheme providing transferable skills
  • Courses are designed to up-skill managers, supervisors and increase operational efficiency
  • Flexible training delivery options

The Driver Certificate of Competence course is based upon the best practice guidelines detailed in the FTA Van Excellence Code. The course provides a wealth of best practice guidance for operating safely, legally and efficiently and is designed to raise standards across van operations.
