New Licence Bureau training solution empowers drivers to reduce road risk
Licence Bureau has launched a new driver training solution that puts the focus on empowering drivers to take a more responsible approach to driving, reducing the risk of work-related incidents.
The Empowered Driving course provides drivers with the tools and strategies to question existing behaviours, creating a ‘culture’ for personal accountability and transparency, which then enables management to take control of any driving issues.
The course, which lasts for 2.5 hours, puts participants in groups of up to 16 to explore subjects such as why people have accidents, the most common incidents and the effects of distraction and speed on outcomes.
A total of 10 bolt-on, 30-minute modules are also available to be included as part of the training, covering areas such as speed awareness, driver fatigue, electric vehicles, ADAS familiarisation and night driving. Two modules can be added per any one Empowered Driving session.
Martin Starkey, training development manager, Licence Bureau, said: “Empowered Driving has been created to do exactly what it suggests – empower business drivers with the insight and knowledge to make the right decisions they are faced with on a day-to-day basis.
“The benefits to empowering drivers are two-fold; not only does the individual driver take on greater responsibility and understanding of the challenges faced daily as well as the opportunities to enhance their skillsets, but so too do organisations benefit from drivers taking greater personal ownership and responsibility for their actions.”
