About Advanced Driving Skills Training

Smooth driving helps both new and experienced drivers drive more safely, reduce vehicle wear, and cut fuel costs. It also helps to protect employers of occupational drivers from the risk of costly accidents, while ensuring compliance.

Why Is Advanced Driving Skills Training Important?

Learning how to drive is just the start. Having the skills to be able to drive smoothly is a different subject entirely. Statistics show that 92% of the total distance travelled by domestic passengers were in cars and private vehicles. Due to the increased reliance on private transport and automobiles, it is vital that the drivers improve their skills and learn more advanced driving techniques.

Smooth driving is often referred to as Eco-driving. It is proven to reduce fuel consumption (studies show anywhere from 5->20% in fuel bills) and believed to deliver improved safety. This is because smooth driving requires good forward planning. This not only helps reduce fuel consumption but also increases the likelihood of spotting hazards early and taking evasive action.

This driving skills course also has a training reinforcement element, which is delivered practically. Through the use of a mobile app, this module tracks the performance of each driver and provides feedback, which reinforces ongoing improvement.

The system automatically manages the skills development of each driver as an ongoing process. The auto alerts are sent to collect required telematics data for each driver which is then analysed.

Short action beacons give information in bite-sized reminders to aid participants with learning.
