Driver Behaviour Workshops
These very lively sessions can be delivered as a stand-alone Workshop tailored to your requirements, or ideally as part of a Driver Training programme with follow-on on-road sessions to re-inforce the messages delivered. These messages can include use of speed, eco-driving and security for example while introducing the concept of "Mind Driving".

The focus of the Driver Behaviour Workshop is based on “Mind Driving” by Stephen Haley and usually comprises two workshops in one
, the primary workshop addressing general driver behaviour and applicable to all delegates, the secondary or breakout workshop targetted at the high risk groups, or those otherwise identified with attitudinal issues.

One group of hot topics includes:

What causes you to Crash?

1.      Fatigue
2.     Alcohol (with Video)
3.     Mobile Phones (with Video)

Following the Workshop, we offer on-road sessions to reinforce the topics covered in the Workshop and to initiate the re-education process for the high risk, nervous or traumatised driver or to continue the mentoring or coaching process for the employee required to drive on company business.

On-Road Process

High Risk

Designed to address those drivers with significant attitudinal/behavioural issues e.g. road-rage, persistent high speed drivers, “boy-racers” in short those drivers who are simply an accident looking for a place to happen. Tailored completely to the driver, this course would seek to instil a keen understanding of defensive driving (typically this type of driver is very adept at vehicle handling) relating their road driving to their “life-driving” and delivering solutions to their situations. This methodology has also been shown to address their personal issues as well as their in-car and on-road attitudes. This may be a 1,2 or even 3 day process, sometimes over a period of 2 weeks, but essentially the driver must be committed to accept and maintain the changes brought about by the process.

Nervous/Traumatised

Designed to address those drivers who have had a serious road traffic incident, and need repatriating into the driving world, or perhaps a nervous driver who has a genuine fear of perhaps driving on motorways, or in bad weather or at night, or maybe dislikes carrying passengers or experiences severe stress at taking an unknown route. All of these can be addressed with a planned and empathetic session focusing initially on the root cause of the problem, finding the solution and then refocusing on applying that to the driving task in conjunction with solid defensive driving skills.
