Safedrive’s on-road training sessions are one of our most popular forms of risk management.
What better way to encourage good driving in your employees than taking them out in their own van, car or HGV with a trained assessor? Drivers often prefer to learn through practice, discussion and visual learning – making these sessions an excellent way to manage risk.
The sessions include discussion to understand driver’s experience, attitude, and expectations, as well as an introduction to core skills: Attention / Concentration, Observation, Hazard Awareness and Risk Perception.
Sessions begin with an initial assessment drive, followed by coaching session to develop core skills with the addition of vehicle positioning, space creation, and communication with other road users. A range of road types and traffic conditions will be incorporated into the drive, with specific attention to any concerns raised by the trainee. If you have a driver with repeat accidents, nerves or any other issue, let us know. We can tailor the session to best meet their needs.
In addition, the awareness programme will provide advice on increased safety for the employee, vehicle security, the reduction of wear and tear on the vehicle and techniques for improved fuel consumption.
At the end of the course, the driver and trainer will review the areas covered by the session. Where necessary, constructive feedback will be given to encourage positive development and commitment to being a safer road user.
(Certification confirming attendance will be issued to all drivers)
Courses can be pre-arranged at any location. Safedrive has a wide selection of qualified assessors across the UK, so we can send a trainer to the location of your choosing!
Car sessions can either be full day or half day (LCV = half day 1-1 ) dependant on the number of participants.
Full day Car sessions can accommodate up to three drivers. Half day sessions are delivered on a 1-1 ratio.
We recommend that Light Commercial Vehicles due to the restricted visibility and seating capacity are delivered on a half day 1-1 ratio.
