Corporate Defensive Driver (2 Day)

Corporate Driver Awareness Course

"[This course] dispelled some urban myths. Examples and activities were informative and life changing (saving too)!"

"I have gained more awareness of what I can do to avoid crashes and the implications of some minor driving habits. It's been a really great and worthwhile course. I wish at least one day of it was compulsory for all drivers."

Driver Training for Corporate Drivers

Tailored course pricing available

Often drivers are rushing from one job to another, travelling long distances in order to do their day’s work, concentrating more on their work than on their driving, but still coping with the inconveniences of road works, peak hour traffic and other road users. We address these issues and teach techniques that will help you not only to drive more safely, but also to feel more relaxed at the end of the drive.

If Managers of corporate fleet drivers have identified particular issues or areas of concern, we can design the course to address those problem areas, or we can extend training to cover those areas of concern.
