What is Advanced Driver Training

Advanced Driving is the ability to control the position and speed of the vehicle safely, systematically and smoothly, using road and traffic conditions to progress unobtrusively with skill and responsibility. This skill requires a positive but courteous attitude and a high standard of driving competence based on concentration, effective all-round observation, anticipation, and planning. This must be co-ordinated with good handling skills. The vehicle will always be at the right speed with the correct gear engaged and can always be stopped safely on its own side of the road in the distance that can be seen to be clear.

Employers Responsibilities

Employers play a critical role in keeping our roads safe. They also have a legal responsibility to provide a safe working environment, both in the office and on the road. This requires ensuring employees who drive as part of their work are equipped with the skills and training to make them safer drivers. Companies that implement safe driving for work do see the benefits, including; reduced insurance premiums, lower fuel costs, greater staff satisfaction and safe employees.

Making road safety a core part of your business not only reduces the risk of death or injury to your staff, it also protects you and your reputation.
