Road Safety is Everyone’s
Business and not just those who have
responsibility for Education, Publicity &

consequences of driving and conflict on the road.

Fleet Driver Training &

Client Driven Approach To Road Safety:
As one of the UK’s specialists in
Fleet Driver Training &
Driving Instructor Training we adopt a client-orientated approach in the
design & delivery of road safety education programmes. Working closely
with companies, organisations and individuals we endeavour
to develop individually tailored Road Safety,
Driver Training & Company Driver Training Programmes meeting the needs of
Approach To Road Safety:
Irrespective of whether
an individual, company or organisation undertakes a
road safety or
programme, the results reach beyond
those directly involved.
Programmes result in
drivers having a greater understanding of their
responsibility and how this may affect their company or organisation.
This is demonstrated through enhanced driving techniques,
improved behaviour and a more responsible attitude.
Such an improved
approach to road safety & driving by the individual will lead to an
enhanced public image of a company or organisation by the public,
saving in running costs and safeguarding individuals and
company or organisations assets.
Above all the safety of
the individual driver, passengers and the general public is
addition to the individual benefits of enhanced safety,
organisations will see a reduction in their overall fleet
fuel costs, vehicle incident rates, down time, insurance
premiums and general maintenance costs.
Fleet Driver Training programmes are often far
reaching beyond the company, as information is disseminated through family and
Aimed at reducing the personal and financial costs to
a company or organisation of road traffic incidents involving staff and the public.
Some 65% of road traffic crashes/accidents involve a
vehicle driven on company business.
Companies are not immune from the real costs of
crashes/accidents involving staff whilst driving in their own time for
personal and private business. Added to the personal suffering of employees
and families, organisations can suffer tremendous financial
loss through down time, lost production etc when a partner or family member
is involved in a road traffic incident.
The benefits of such
programmes extend beyond the company or organisation as information is disseminated to
family, friends and the general public.
Courses can combine both theory and practical training. The
theory aspect looks at the risks to individuals and offers coping strategies
tailored to the organisation. The practical in-car assessments and training
raise awareness of the individual driver to their responsibilities.

Training: South West
Road Safety we believe that the key to success in
developing an Instructor of high quality able to
deal with the future developments in Driving
Instructor Training and Education is, providing a structured high
Driving Instructor Training programme with full
support at all stages in a programme.
UK Road Safety is unique in
Driving Instructor Training in that we endeavour to provide
structured training programmes to suite the individual.
Our approach is to have
separate modules for each part of the 3-part qualifying
process. This allows clients to only pay for the module that
they are undertaking at the time rather than pay for the
whole programme in advance. In this way it allows you to
spread the cost of training to suit your individual needs.
Each client/trainee is
allocated an Individual Course Tutor who will see your
training through to the end.
