Key to any successful and
cost effective driver-training programme is the primary selection of candidates for the training. If funding is not an issue,
then all drivers will benefit from an on-road session – good drivers will become better drivers, and
inexperienced or incompetent drivers will be clearly identified and their programme will focus on their individual shortfalls.
But..funding is often an issue, and proving the benefits of a training programme before it has been implemented is inevitably
a stumbling block when securing funding. However,
assessing the risk that each individual driver is at while they are driving on company business can usually provide a clear
identification of those who would benefit most from a training programme.

Universal Driver Training offers a range of on-line tools to help assess this risk. These can enable
your organization to gather and manage key “profile” information on your drivers to benchmark against published
best practice guides. Nothing can replace the practical benefits of an on-road assessment and training programme, but this
is an excellent starting point for identifying those most in need of training and development.
This is based on an analysis
of "driver competence" - Attitude, Knowledge, and Observation and Hazard Perception skills, utilising straightforward
on-line profiling exercises that are both pertinent and absorbing.
Perhaps the most interesting factor is that using this on-line profile
will readily enable your company to identify the drivers who are most likely to be responsible for your accidents - typically
20% of your drivers will be responsible for 80% of your accident costs, and therefore those most in need of training
and on-going support. This can allow the probable financial savings to be compared profitably with the training costs and
thus the case is made.
a nominal sum, Universal Driver Training can implement these profiling tools, manage the results and work with your company
to assess the training requirements identified. We can then develop and provide on and off-road training, risk analysis and
ongoing risk management to whatever level is required.
