Driver Training Should be On-Going, Not Once a Year
06/02/2013

Driver development courses resulting in less accidents, falling repair costs and improved safety can become a regular feature of a company’s training plan by using e-learning.

Rather than offering training once a year, or whenever a driver is deemed to be having too many accidents, it should be provided to drivers in short bursts delivered through a web-based system.

It can then become part of the culture of a company ensuring that careful, accident free, driving remains at the forefront of people’s minds all year round.

“Most people recognise that a one-off driver training course will deliver a change in behaviour, however bad driving habits can quickly creep back in,” said Jonathan Mosley, director of sales and marketing at E-Training World.

“However if drivers carry out focused online courses lasting only 15 to 20 minutes on specific topics such as hazard perception, the use of mobile phones, manoeuvring, adverse weather conditions etc, they can benefit from regular driver education as well as realising that their driving standards are being taken very seriously by their employer.

“Regular training, monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly, can begin to instil safe driving into the culture of a business and this can lead to more permanent change.”

E-Training World offers a suite of e-learning courses which can be offered at very low cost and are quick and easy for drivers to conduct.

“Asking a driver to log into a system for 20 minutes every other month is a very simple request indeed,” concluded Jonathan. “However, by doing so can lead to reduced accidents across a vehicle fleet resulting in very major savings, as well as eliminating a great deal of time spent processing claims, dealing with repairers and sorting out hire cars.”
