Driving for Work

Our flagship on-road training course, covering all aspects of business driving.

Essential skills for safer business driving

Driving is statistically the most hazardous task that you will ask your employees to carry out. In the UK almost one in three road fatalities involves a driver on a journey for work purposes. Our Driving for Work training course has been created specifically with business drivers in mind, and has been designed to equip them with knowledge and skills

that help them stay safe on the road. This on-road training course will improve driver safety. It will also benefit your business by reducing the incidence of collisions and associated downtime by helping your drivers develop a more efficient driving style that’s gentler on their vehicles.

Course structure:

Driving for Work is a 3-hour course designed specifically for business drivers, aimed at helping them to become safer by addressing the most common risk factors encountered by at-work drivers, especially those who spend a significant proportion of their time out on the roads.

Irrespective of a driver’s level of experience, the pressures of work can translate into heightened road risk. Spending time with one of our professional drivers, who can observe and analyse their driving and communicate with them about the particular driving challenges faced in their role, is the most direct way to target the development areas that will have the most positive impact on safety.

  • How to carry out vehicle risk assessments
  • Identifying and manage risk regarding personal safety, ergonomics, fatigue and mobile phone use
  • Enhanced driver behaviours
  • How to drive in a fuel efficient manner
  • Identifying and managing risks associated with low speed driving
  • Understanding and implementing the three principles of manoeuvring when parking or driving in confined spaces

This outlines in detail the delegate’s performance across all sections of the course, and any further observations and comments from the trainer, including any recommendations for further development.

This report forms the backbone of a robust audit trail for your training programme, confirming an employee’s participation in the course, their risk rating, and any additional training needs that.

Excellent trainer who explained the important points in a very conversational way which I will both remember and implement. 5 stars.


Excellent day which I gained valuable tips from - road awareness, positioning and improved fuel efficiency to name a few!


I highly recommend IAM RoadSmart. The roads would be a much safer place if more drivers take this course.
