SAFED Driver Training

SAFED Programme Development:
   
  SAFED is a complimentary driver development course, involving assessment & training. It's aim is to develop safe & fuel efficient driving skills of LCV drivers. It therefore should compliment a broader programme of driver training management.
 
Why Undertake SAFED Training
  During 2003 UK Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) activity amounted to 58 billion kilometres (Department for Transport statistics). Over 90% of this was concerned with the collection & delivery of goods, travel between homes & workplace or between travelling jobs. It can therefore be seen that LCv's can play an important role in the countries economy.
