Brake publishes guide on effective driver training

The report, entitled “Effective driver training and education in companies”, gives practical advice and guidance alongside best practice company case studies. The report includes guidance on:

  • When training and education can and should be delivered, including after risk assessments
  • How to develop the attitudes and behaviours to have a positive impact on road safety
  • Practical guidance on using training and a range of educational interventions
  • Advice on key road safety education topics: targeting young drivers, drink and drugs, speed, and distracted driving

Dr Tom Fisher, Brake’s senior research and communications officer, said: “The training and education of drivers is an essential part of companies’ duty of care. By making sure that drivers have the necessary skills, and providing education to improve their attitudes and behaviours, companies can have a large impact on road safety – and their bottom line. Having a holistic approach to educating, raising awareness and training drivers has the greatest sustained impact.”

The report is available free of charge to all members of Brake Professional, and for £5 from the Brake shop (www.brake.org.uk/shop).

In addition, courtesy of funding provided by Bibby Line Group, Brake has 250 Brake Professional memberships to give away to SMEs. Membership usually costs up to £155 + VAT and members gain free access to all its training tools and resources, and discount attendance at our training events.
