Explain organisational policies and procedures, in relation to driving the cycle and load, in a fuel efficient manner, that relate to:

• health, safety and security

• legal requirements

• operating requirements

1.2

Explain the organisation’s policy when driving conditions vary and result in changes to the schedule

1.3

Describe how to adapt driving styles to changes in driving conditions

1.4

Explain how to adapt driving manner to suit changes in driving conditions

1.5

Explain how the actions of other road users can affect driving manner

1.6

Explain how to:

• position the cycle on the road to ensure the safety of yourself and other road users

• appropriately use signals

• alter speed to meet different types of road conditions and requirements

• use the controls of the cycle to optimize fuel consumption

• assess and maintain safe separation distances

• assess factors affecting safe stopping distances

• use the controls of the cycle to adjust braking under different road conditions

1.7

Identify types of hazard that could occur on the road

1.8

When overtaking, identify:

• when overtaking should and should not occur

• the types of hazards involved

• factors affecting the distance required to overtake other vehicles

1.9

Describe the effects severe braking could have on the load and roadworthiness of the cycle

Explain the appropriate action to take, in order to deal with identified problems

2

Be able to drive the cycle on public roads in a safe and fuel efficient manner

2.1

Follow organisational policies and procedures, in relation to driving the cycle and load, in a fuel efficient manner, that relate to:

• health, safety and security

• legal requirements

• operating requirements

2.2

Position the cycle and apply lane discipline to maintain the safety of yourself, other road users according to the prevailing driving conditions

2.3

Demonstrate how to drive the cycle safely and in a fuel efficient manner to include:

• giving clear signals in good time

• driving at the appropriate speed for the driving conditions

• minimising fuel consumption and wear and tear

• applying the braking systems, in a controlled manner, appropriate to the driving conditions, distance available, the cycle and its load

• overtaking other vehicles at a suitable point
