Driver Training

Looking to improve driver behaviour?

Are your drivers putting themselves, other road users and your business at risk?

Successfully reducing accidents, and the associated costs, requires a sustained change in driver behaviour, brought about by empowering drivers to make better decisions through improved knowledge and skills

There are 4 steps to improving driver attitude
  1. Driver Risk Profiling: Understanding the various risks your drivers may be exposed to and where any significant knowledge gaps may be. This activity helps with your duty of care obligations and identifies any specific training requirements. Our systems are easy to use and allow employers to quickly spot both general problems and individual drivers who could benefit from a little extra help.
  2. Online Learning: Easily accessible by most employees, an online learning programme allows additional knowledge and education to be implements quickly and easily, especially within organisations that have large or remote workforces.
  3. Driver Awareness Classroom Training: Classroom sessions can really help to improve safe driving culture as they allow drivers to fully understand the consequences of a range of driving behaviours. Exploring these in an interactive group setting allows various myths and misunderstandings to be identified, explored fully and corrected.
  4. In-Vehicle Training: Many crashes are caused by behaviours that can be readily and quickly addressed through in-vehicle training such as inattentive low-speed manoeuvring or rear-end shunts caused by a tendency to drive too close. It is also often the best way of improving driver confidence, dealing with those who have had multiple crashes or ensuring your duty of care has been covered with new or inexperienced drivers such as graduates.

Driver Risk Profiling and Assessment

We have driver risk profiling tools for both car and van drivers that quickly highlight any areas where your drivers may be at higher risk of a collision. Areas of profiling include driving history, current driving activity, knowledge of road laws, thought process and confidence, observation and hazard perception.

The system is simple to use and comes with a risk manager dashboard to quickly identify problem areas or ‘at risk’ drivers allowing targeted interventions.

Classroom Training

Your drivers probably know how to drive safely but some may choose not to. Maybe they aren’t fully aware of the possible consequences of their behaviour on the road, or maybe they occasionally feel that the pressure of being a productive employee outweighs the need to remain vigilant and safe while driving, as they rush between meetings.

Often, risk taking isn’t intentional – it can happen because your driver believes that he or she is behaving safely when in actual fact, they have put themselves and other road users in potentially serious danger.

Our workshops are for groups of up to 20 drivers (car and/or van), normally last a half day, and address their awareness of the main driver safety issues including:

Driver responsibilities, Mobile phone distraction, Alcohol and drugs, Speed and space, Planning your journey, Different road types, Parking and reversing, Driving in adverse weather, Health including eyesight, Tiredness and driver fatigue, Vehicle maintenance, Vehicle safety systems, Emergency procedures
