Driver Speed Awareness courses for company drivers can be used proactively to ensure that employees continue to drive legally and safely, or as an intervention for those at risk of offending. Using simple techniques to make safe progress while understanding speed limits can mean that drivers get from A to B without lengthening journey times.
As one of the 'Fatal Four', speeding is considered a high risk behaviour which employers want to address at the earliest opportunity.
These courses can be run company-wide as part of a defensive driving initiative, or used individually for drivers who have a record of speeding either through in-vehicle trackers or from fixed penalty notices, to reduce the likelihood of re-offending or bans. These courses help to keep drivers efficient and legal with vital employees staying on the road, while reducing fleet insurance costs.
