New online course tackles issue of speeding
The modular training programme combines an assessment of drivers' attitudes and knowledge to pinpoint those at greatest risk from speeding with immediate education and training.
The firm says that the training will hopefully save drivers a fine, penalty points and even their job in the future.
'As well as being a danger to other road users, drivers penalised for speeding are a real concern to companies,' said Jonathan Mosley, E-Training World's director of sales & marketing. 'Because too many points on their licence ultimately means they could be suspended from driving and unable to carry out their duties.
'Whether it's a sales person, field engineer or delivery driver this is catastrophic because either you are left paying a salary to someone who cannot fulfil their work obligations or, if you are contractually allowed to, you dismiss them and have to endure the costly and time-consuming recruitment and training process.'
The course is one of the new modular programmes launched this year by the fleet risk assessment and training company to address specific driving traits that can prove costly for companies and their drivers.
'We've often been asked by companies what they should do when drivers get points on their licence and this is the perfect solution,' concluded Jonathan. 'Better still, it has the flexibility for companies to include some of their own policy questions in too making it an effective resource for fleet operators.'
