Driving for Work

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

Our Driving for Work course

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

will help them to stay safe on the road. By helping to improve your drivers’ skills, not only can this course improve their safety, it can benefit your business by reducing the incidence of collisions and associated downtime, and by helping your drivers to develop a more efficient driving style that’s gentler on their vehicles.

Course structure:

Business driver training teaches a broad range of skills that are essential learning for those who drive a car or LCV as part of their working life, including:

  • 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

Driver Evaluation Report

Upon completion of the Driving for Work training course, our trainer will provide their scores and feedback in the form of a comprehensive, structured report. 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.
