Driving Safely Training Course
This Driving Safely Training course is ideal for people who undertake driving as part of their daily work activities. Once a driving test is passed, often no other driving qualifications are undertaken afterwards, and over an amount of time from driving on the road, it is easy to pick up bad habits. Unfortunately, these habits can be hazardous to the health of the driver or other road users or pedestrians. Learners will be reminded of important road safety checks that should be upheld before starting a journey, and how common sense and awareness can help them to keep safe whilst driving to their destination.
This course follows a story of a business trip which results in a fatal car accident due to the errors that have been made throughout the car journey. It looks at the consequences of this accident by showing a court case, reinforcing the importance of driving safety.
This course will help learners to understand why precautions are taken before a journey is started and how to continue to be vigilant when driving on the roads to ensure that safety is upheld for the driver, passengers, and other road users.
