Vehicle Familiarisation Training

Give your employees the commercial vehicle training they need to protect themselves and your assets.

New vehicles: new challenges

For new employees or those who are changing job role within an organisation, it’s important to be able to operate vehicles in a safe, effective manner. This is especially true if they have no previous experience of the type of vehicle they will be driving. Moving from a compact car into a large van, for example, requires significant adjustments to driving style and levels of awareness in order to avoid causing collisions, and many drivers find unfamiliar vehicles daunting as a result.
