Fleet Driving Skills Assessment

Web title with red car

 

Our fleet driving skills assessment helps companies and organisations reduce the human, financial  and legal costs of work related driving accidents. 

A road traffic accident involving  one of your employees can have catastrophic consequences for your company. Could your company afford the loss of a vital member of staff, an essential vehicle out of service or the inevitable increase in insurance premiums?

Are you aware of your legal obligations?

The Health and Safety at Work Act states that you are responsible for the safety of all your employees when they are using a company vehicle for a work purpose.

Moreover, if death or injury result from any work related driving accident you may face prosecution under the Corporate Manslaughter legislation.

More details are contained on the pages Crash statistics, Legal responsibility, Driving Policy, Benefits and Driver Training. Access the pages via the drop down menu.

How do you comply with the legislation?

For small to medium companies the assessment procedure is a relatively simple process.

Each driver in your company or organisation takes part in an assessment driving session and is given a risk rating. Records of the assessment are kept in your offices.

Driving licences are checked with the DVLA.

High risk drivers would be required to undertake training. All drivers must be periodically reassessed, usually within 12 months.

The assessment sessions not only ensure compliance with legal obligations but demonstate to the drivers how  attitude  and behaviour and basic care and maintenance of the vehicles contribute to the wellbeing of the company or organisation.

How much will this cost

Every company or organisation is different; the number of drivers, where they are based and the type and number of vehicles. To enable us to provide a cost we would first have to meet with a key member of staff to establish these facts. Based on such a discussion we would provide a cost and an agreed scope of work.

    PATIENT, REASSURING AND EXTREMELY PROFESSIONAL

    Having not driven for ten years, I had completely lost my confidence. I found Sandy to be patient, reassuring and extremely professional and he supported me to get driving again far more quickly than I would have ever imagined. I also liked the fact that he left it up to me to decide how many lessons I felt I needed: there was no pressure to have any more lessons than was strictly necessary, unlike with some other companies.

    I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sandy and, in fact, I already have!

    IRONING OUT MY DRIVING PROBLEMS

    Sandy is an excellent instructor I passed with only 23 hours behind the wheel with no former experience. He is laid back and I felt at ease straight away, instead of being critical he really helps iron out driving problems. I have recommended him to everybody that I have heard is having driving lessons. I think he’s great!

    I’VE PASSED WITHIN 3 MONTHS

    I had been through a couple of driving schools and had been very unhappy with their service as I felt they were just interested in the money. When I registered with Sandy he was very upfront with me and told me what to do and what not to do. He took me straight through what was needed in a friendly and very helpful way and within three months I had both passed my theory and practical test. My exact words to Sandy were “I would recommend you to all my family and friends”. And that is exactly what I intend to do.
