The aim of the In-Vehicle Training course is to provide a full risk assessment of the driver and constructive training to improve behaviours and habits.
The course runs over 3.5 hours (or a full day). The main aspects of the training include speed awareness and discipline, distance awareness and management, and observations and hazard perception.
The course is targeted at any employee driving a company vehicle such as a car, van, or HGV.
- Minimise risks and incidents.
- Reduce fines.
- Drivers have better working knowledge of the highway code.
- Become up to date with legislation.
- Drivers gain new skills to advance knowledge.
- Drivers learn safe defensive driving techniques.
There are three parts to the training:
The trainer will accompany a driver, assessing their driving behaviour, observations, awareness and reactions to create a risk assessment on the day.
The trainer will be in the vehicle with the driver to offer advice regarding the risk assessment, to enforce safe, defensive driving techniques.
A final recommendation list will cover any points raised in the training to ensure the driver can review and improve their driving techniques and make behavioural changes.
