Fleet Training

Effective training is the key to improving driving standards and improving road safety.

Our courses draw on a range of techniques that have been proven to give good results in the short, medium and long term. The Fleet Training portfolio of services has been designed by experienced professionals to help you manage risk and optimise the performance of your fleet.

We recognise that every fleet – and every driver – is different. This is why we don’t have a one-size-fits-all approach to Driver Risk Management. We know that every case is unique.

We work with each client, using data from a range of sources, to create a programme that will help your organisation to operate more profitably and more safely. It’s all about helping every driver feel connected to the subject matter – if they see a benefit to themselves or their loved ones they’ll be much more responsive and retain more of the information and techniques shared with them into the future

Our Fleet Training services are organised into the following categories:

  • Practical Training
    One-to-one and group training sessions, delivered face-to-face and carefully selected to reflect the realities of running a busy transport operation.
  • Online & Virtual Training
    A diverse series of courses, from manager and driver workshops to eLearning, designed to be quick and easy to implement in your business.
  • Fleet Analysis & Compliance
    Services to help you understand and manage risk within your transport operation, from licence checking to traffic management and fleet profiling.

All courses are engaging, interactive and delivered by trained professionals, our trainers are hand-picked and have a vast array of experience. They are classed as experts in the delivery of advanced driver training – but they’re much more than ‘just’ trainers. They are driving coaches, who listen and discuss different approaches to improve driving standards. It’s about finding the particular technique or training methodology that is most suited to each particular individual.

All of our trainers are experts in the ‘Roadcraft System of Vehicle Control’ -aka, the police driver’s handbook which used a systemised approach that to allow drivers to respond to hazards appropriately. This approach is used and adapted by Fleet Training trainers to improve vehicle control techniques, observation, concentration and awareness to create a smooth, flowing drive.

Why Choose Driver Hire Fleet Training?

By choosing Driver Hire Fleet Training, not only are you helping your employees to become better, safer drivers, you are improving safety for all road users, reducing incidents and gaining the maximum return on your investment to make a real difference to your organisation.

Driver Hire Fleet Training works to give all drivers an understanding of the four-level Goals for Driver Education (GDE) matrix:

  1. Vehicle Control
  2. Dealing with Traffic
  3. Journey Management
  4. Self-awareness

Many drivers underestimate the importance of journey management and self-aware driving. That’s why we put particular emphasis on those two elements. After all, if drivers are aware of how they might react, they can make allowances and respond differently in the future. Ultimately, a self-aware driver is a safer driver.
