Fleet driver training is an integral component of a fleet management programme. The goal is to eliminate or reduce risks encountered by company drivers whilst at the same time, lower fleet costs by reducing accidents, fuel costs and insurance premiums. Your drivers represent your company on the road so creating a positive Corporate image is important. Statistics show that 1 in every 3 road accidents involve a company vehicle.
You have a duty of care to your drivers under The Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 and The Health and Safety at Work Act 2008
If your company has five or more employees, some of whom drive for work then your business has serious corporate responsibilities. Your company has a “duty of care” to your employees and this extends to ALL drivers of company vehicles or driving their own vehicle on behalf of the business. This includes things similar to driving to the bank or the stationers etc.
We are client focused and will work with you to meet your business needs and requirements. We can offer a 2/3 hour classroom presentation for as many employees as you require. We can also produce evidence of knowledge increase and evidence of attitude improvement for each employees personnel file.
On-road assessment and training is recommended for High Mileage drivers or those with points on their licence or who have a history of knocks and bumps or insurance claims. You might choose to extend this to all drivers
At-work crashes are the single largest cause of employment-related deaths in the UK. the main contributor to motor vehicle crashes shown to be driver behaviour. Our trainers are experienced in behavioural change techniques
Young drivers (17-24 years old) are at a much higher risk of crashing than older drivers. Drivers aged 17-19 only make up 1.5% of UK licence holders, but are involved in 12% of fatal and serious crashes.
Research shows that the combination of youth and inexperience puts younger drivers at high risk. Their inexperience means they have less ability to spot hazards, and their youth means they are particularly likely to take risks. Below are some of the specific characteristics of young drivers that put them at high risk of crashes.
Our specifically designed course for young/new drivers address issues such as over confidence, risk assessment and identification of hazards, speeding, use of mobile technology, drink/drug issues, driving at night and peer pressure.
We work regularly with International Drivers who may be fully competent and experienced drivers in their country of origin but may have little or no experience driving in the UK. It is our experience that most international drivers benefit enormously from our UK Familiarisation Course helping them get up to speed confidently and quickly with driving in the UK.
This course aims to introduce clients to the Highway Code and driving on British roads so that they can navigate themselves safely and with confidence. By the end of this course delegates should:
If you hold a licence from one of the countries in the European Community or European Economic Area listed below, you may able to do a straight transfer to a full UK driving licence but our advice would be to check with the DirectGov website.
Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Republic of Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Portugal, Slovenia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom.
However, you would still be advised to take some training for driving on the roads in the UK.
If your current licence was issued in a country not listed above, then you may be able to drive in the UK on a full non-GB driving licence for the first 12 months, after which you must apply for a UK Provisional Driver’s Licence and take the UK driving test to gain a Full UK Driver’s Licence.
The UK Government web site has lots of information about driving in the UK on a non-GB driving licence. It gives advice on what you need to know about driving in the UK, whether you took your original driving test in a European Community / European Economic Area country, or are from a country outside of these zones.
To ensure continuous driving entitlement a provisional GB licence must have been obtained and a driving test(s) passed before the 12-month period elapses. If you obtain a provisional licence during this period, you are not subject to provisional licence conditions eg displaying 'L' plates or being supervised by a qualified driver or being precluded from motorways.
However, if you do not pass a test within the 12-month concessionary period you will not be allowed to drive as a full licence holder and provisional licence conditions will apply. If you do not apply for a provisional licence within the first 12 months you must stop driving and obtain a British provisional licence with a view to passing a driving test. Provisional licence conditions will then apply.
