Our Courses, although tailored to our clients' specific objectives, all deal with the core best practices for drivers on company business.

  • Hazard Recognition
  • Causes of road accidents and how to avoid them
  • Use of speed - is it inappropriate?
  • Driver attitude and behaviour
  • Stress and fatigue - how to reduce or avoid it
  • Confidence building (for nervous drivers)
  • Dealing with aggression and road rage
  • Vehicle sympathy
  • Fuel and tyre economy
  • Smooth and safe driving
  • Parking - selection of parking places and positioning in them
  • Legislation (smoking, phones, parking restrictions)
  • Security for drivers, passengers and loads

Dealing with the above issues, and guiding your drivers to always employ best practice can, without doubt, provide these benefits to your company:

  • Reduction in Fuel costs
    Reduction in VOR costs
    Reduction in Fleet costs
    Reduction in Insurance Costs
    Reducion in Vehicle costs

but not only that.....

  • Reduction in Working Time lost
    Reduction in Profits lost
    Reduction in Customers lost

and importantly:
putting a Driver Training programme in place can dramatically reduce the implications for your company under the Corporate Manslaughter Act if one of your drivers has a serious incident.


Course Overview

Our Defensive Courses are designed to deliver the maximum benefit to each delegate while achieving the objectives set by your company. We take a "mentoring" approach to our training, coaching rather than teaching, advising rather than instructing. The day starts with an overview of the objectives and expectations of the day together with a discussion on their driving experience. This is followed by vehicle checks and then an assessment drive. We will then agree more structured objectives with each delegate and the training experience will begin. The last stage is the final assessment drive followed by a discussion on the day's activities when final reports are completed and certification awarded where achieved.

Remedial courses for persistent offenders or for nervous or traumatised drivers follow the same core approach but the focus is then on their reasons for attending the course and reporting will reflect specific development in the target areas.
