How will the course benefit me?
Your attitude to driving, risk-taking and vehicle maintenance can influence your likelihood of being involved in a traffic accident. This course will give you a basic overview of how attitude affects driving behaviour and how you can adopt safe driving techniques to reduce risk.
The knowledge gained in this course will help you to stay safe in your day-to-day driving and if you are required to drive abroad. It will also indicate the importance of journey planning and preparation.
How will the course benefit my company?
By ensuring you are fully aware of the influence that your attitude and actions can have on your driving behaviours, you contribute to making the roads a safer place for yourself, your passengers, and other road users.
