Course overview

Our Driving for Work course is the ideal way to keep your drivers safe, increase their confidence and equip them with skills for their professional and personal life. It’s a great way to show you care about their well-being.

Fleet operating costs are often unpredictable, especially when fuel can rise or fall in price and insurance premiums grow year on year. But one thing is for sure: you’ll always want to keep your costs low. Our Driving for Work course helps you achieve efficiencies in fleet operating costs and reduce incident rates – the main driver behind rising insurance premiums. 

As an added benefit, you will fulfil your duty of care responsibility and comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974
