DriveTech adds EV-focused modules to video driver training series
DriveTech has expanded its video driver training with new electric vehicle modules to educate and reinforce EV best practice.
The driver training specialist, which is part of the AA, launched a series of new training videos in February 2021, providing an easier way for fleets to engage with drivers on safety.
The new EV Co-Driver modules join the series, helping drivers get the most out of their vehicle and stay safe while behind the wheel.
Suitable for all drivers who are either new to EVs or experienced with them, 17 EV Co-Driver modules are available, using ‘nudge’ theory to educate drivers through animated training.
This helps drivers to feel at ease with the new technology, ultimately reducing anxiety and increasing safety on the road.
The training can then be bolstered with further courses and workshops.
Leo Taylor, head of product solutions at DriveTech, said: “EV Co-Driver is the latest addition to our suite of video driver training modules. A brand-new immersive way to educate drivers on new technology and best practice behind the wheel, EV Co-Driver provides a completely flexible and engaging approach to driver training through a series of short but sweet animations. In addition, we also offer further EV training courses and workshops.
“Manufacturers, fleets and private motorists are preparing their drivers for electric vehicles in a variety of different ways. However, at DriveTech we put education first with our focus being on ensuring drivers understand the unique operation, maintenance and driving strategies required to maximise safety and efficiency behind the wheel of an EV. Importantly, we also understand the perceived barriers around EV adoption and our training supports businesses with this as well.”
