What are the Benefits of Driver Training?

There are many benefits of driver training. Through providing your employees with driver training, you are protecting your employees and business.  Unskilled drivers can be a risk to not only themselves, but other road users and your business. Through our bespoke training courses, we are able to upskill your drivers, to help ensure that they are safe and responsible behind the wheel. This training helps to reduce the risk of an incident occurring, and helps your employees adopt an improved driving technique. 

With more skilled drivers, you will not only limit the likelihood of incidents occurring but create opportunities for your business. Better drivers deliver better service, and by driving in an economic manner, your employees can help to significantly lower your business’ operating costs. Through providing your employees with professional advanced driver training, you may gain a range of benefits, including: 

Safer and More Skilled Drivers

Through our driver training courses, we will develop your employees’ driving skills, to help them become more safe and responsible drivers. With 1 in 3 UK road traffic incidents involving individuals driving for work, it is clear that driver training is necessary to help save lives and to protect your employees and business.

Road traffic incidents, cost businesses thousands of pounds each year. They can also result in employees and vehicles being off the road for extended periods of time. A recent study by the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM), found that around 86% of business fleets had been affected by road traffic incidents in the past 12 months. It is our aim to work with you to lower these statistics. 

Our driver training courses are designed to upskill your employees and encourage them to adopt an improved driving technique. This helps to develop your employees’ awareness and anticipation skills, to create a ‘safety bubble’ around their vehicle, allowing them to identify and avoid potential risks. Through developing these skills, they can safely protect themselves, and your business. 

Corporate and Fleet Driver Training Saves Money

Driver training creates safer and more skilled drivers. This significantly reduces the chance for your employees to be involved in a road traffic incident. Road traffic incidents in the UK, cost businesses on average, £6000 per year. This is before considering the effects of lost business and time spent off of the road. Skilled drivers have better awareness and anticipation skills, allowing them to identify and avoid potential hazards. 

By providing your employees with training, you can help to save your business time and money. This helps protect your employees and business, whilst ensuring that you can operate at full capacity. Better drivers provide better service to your customers and save your business money.

By providing your employees with driver training, you are helping to ensure their safety. Driver training helps to protect your employees and your business. 

Many companies have failed to ensure the safety of employees, resulting in them being prosecuted. This can result in several punishments and can cause media and public backlash.
