Driver Awareness Course Overview
Our roads in the UK, along with those in Sweden, the Netherlands and Denmark are the four safest European countries for road users, but, even here, more people are killed in work-related road accidents than in any other work-related accidents!
This driver awareness course hightlights the dangers and the importance of staying focussed and aware of what's going on around us when we drive. It's really important that we don’t become complacent and that we know when NOT to drive.
This course aims to increase confidence, explaining the basic rules and regulations and best practice for drivers and road users.
It looks at employer and employee responsibilities, safe driving, safe vehicles, safe journeys and what to do in an emergency situation, such as an accident or breakdown.
Why is training required?
Driver Awareness Training is required to help prevent accidents on the road and teach you what to do in worst case scenarios and emergencies. Almost 1 in 6 jobs in the UK involve driving - training is essential for these people, it’s so easy to slip into bad driving practices and our course also acts as a great refresher.
