Description

Gain a better understanding of how to reduce the risk of accident and/or injury from occurring by applying simple but effective safety measures when driving in a work-based capacity. The course is an ideal training option for those whose work requires them to drive regularly and for prolonged periods of time including long distance lorry drivers, delivery drivers, taxi drivers etc. It is also suitable for those who work in a managerial position or are responsible for supervising employees who drive on public roads for the purposes of work.

For those who are required to drive as part of their everyday jobs, the risks of being involved in a road accident can significantly increase if the proper precautionary measures aren't taken. Therefore, it is essential for such employees to equip themselves with knowledge of safe driving practices, and acquire the skills to be able to put this knowledge into practice.

This course is not intended to be a refresher of the Highway Code, nor is it designed as a general guide for driving to and from a student's place of employment.
