Virtual in-vehicle driver training debuts from TTC Group’s Business Driver
A new virtual in-vehicle driver training course using dashcam technology for live, two-way interaction is now being offered by TTC Group’s Business Driver fleet risk management subsidiary.
Making use of the latest connected technologies for visual and audio communications, the new virtual driver training protocol allows ‘hands-on’ and live one-to-one driver coaching in a Covid-secure manner.
The new training has been introduced during the pandemic by Business Driver – which was acquired by TTC last year –and has proved so popular that it will now be developed further for the future.
The coaching can determine the driver’s risk areas for the category of vehicle they drive and then transmit live dashcam footage in real time back to a remote-based Business Driver trainer who then analyses, coaches and supports a driver during any given live on-road situation. The driver can also provide commentary or ask questions regarding their observations.
This is then followed up by further analysis and communications – ensuring a bespoke approach and enabling ongoing driver development.
Seb Goldin, CEO/founder of Business Driver, said the training would allow individuals and businesses to continue to focus on road safety and ensure they stay on top of their CSR policies during such challenging times.
“Our state-of-the-art technologies provide us with such interactive capabilities that it truly is like having one of our specialist coaches in the front seat. This approach is most certainly now here for the future and will provide yet another key aspect of our training portfolio moving ahead.”
