How best to manage road risk for company drivers.
Driving Innovation has over 30 years experience in delivering high quality fleet driver training and assessment as part of a wider fleet risk management programme. Our solutions are extremely effective and relevant for companies in the public or private sector with a fleet of 5 vehicles or 5000 vehicles.
What is fleet driver training?
Fleet driver training is an integral component of a fleet management programme. The goal is to eliminate or reduce risks encountered by company drivers whilst at the same time, lower fleet costs by reducing accidents, fuel costs and insurance premiums. Your drivers represent your company on the road so creating a positive corporate image is important.
What is your “Duty of Care”? If your company employs drivers, or has employees who frequently drive as part of their job role then your business has serious corporate responsibilities. Your company has a “duty of care” to your employees and this extends to ALL drivers of company vehicles or driving their own vehicle on behalf of the business. If you would like more information regarding responsibilities or on how we can help you significantly cut the costs of running your fleet – please get in touch.
Driving Innovation provides solutions that are comprehensive, cost-effective and flexible
We will work with you and find the right fit. Driving Innovation can provide you with a range of off the shelf products and services as part of a broader fleet risk management programme. Or, as is more often the case, after a “gap analysis”, design, deliver and monitor a bespoke programme for you.
On-road training is provided. 2 hour, or half-day workshops [normally for 4 – 10 employees] can also be run on areas such as speed awareness, eco-driving, mobile usage, personal safety and road risk management.
On-road assessment and training is in the format of a 1/2 or 1 day course for 1 or 2 drivers. Any practical training of your employees will seek to minimise the amount of time away from their job role.
Our 360 fleet driver training covers all angles.
Latest research confirms that driving for work involves a higher level of risk than driving for non-work related activities.

Identify how to cut the cost of running your fleet?
5 common areas which normally indicate there are savings to be made…
1. Escalating fleet insurance premiums
2. Continually rising maintenance and repair costs
3. A rise in the incident of driver related accidents
4. High fuel costs [savings of around 10% can be reached by learning new eco-driving skills which can be implemented easily each day]
“All companies these days who have employees who have to drive a significant amount of miles in exercising their duties must provide training especially in the field of defensive and safe driving. We have always used Driving Innovation and found the practical courses / workshops within the fleet driver training programme to be not only instructive but also inspirational.
