Fleet-Driver-Course-1

This course is for organisations that employ people who drive as part of their job.

If you drive a car, van or light goods vehicle (LVG) for work, this one-day course will improve your skills and help your organisation meet its road safety responsibilities.

It costs £149 per person, as long as there are at least six people from your organisation.

What sort of course is it?

The morning is in a relaxed classroom setting, possibly at your workplace, with qualified trainers.

In the afternoon you’ll be out on the road in your vehicle with another person from the course and a fleet-registered approved driving instructor

You’ll learn how to reduce risks, recognise things that influence how you drive, and see how to be safer on the road.

There’s no test, but you’ll get a written report describing your skills with recommendations to improve your driving.
