It has been reported then almost one in three accidents on the roadside involve a commercial van or truck driver. Bearing this in mind it has become wise for companies to invest in driving training, these schemes can help individuals to not only become much more safety conscious but also conserve costs for their respective companies.
It doesn’t matter if you are driving a Foray commercial vehicle such as a Ford Transit connect van, costs regarding accidents of any magnitude do not differ and include items such as legal fees, vehicle repair costs and even claims from third parties. By offering drivers the chance to gain a better standard of driving you can also expect to reduce other factors in your everyday business such as the amount of sick days that employees will take and even factors such as license points which can cause a large problem for people working within the driving industry.
One such company that has embraced the idea of training courses is the telecommunications company British Telecom. With one of the largest van fleets in the UK the company has been offering driving training courses to many of its 79,000 employees.
There are numerous companies offering services and courses throughout the UK, many offer both online and practical training courses. There are many people that think that there is only so much you can do on a computer and that you will get the most out of these training sessions by being out in their work surroundings.
One of the ideas behind van driving training is that it doesn’t teach you how to drive better but instead helps you improve upon your perception of risk.
