While this does make up the bulk of driver education, there is another facet of driving schools that is often overlooked:
This involves a 30 minute in car evaluation and 1 hour group test about attitudes and approaches to driving. The goal of this program is to help drivers identify and reduce risks while driving. This Assessment targets RISK ANALYSIS, the risk potential of High, Medium and low level risks. Our task is to assist the driver in seeking methods of improvement in any of their driving, self-evaluation, or perceptive/attitudinal skills. The end goal is to identify and reduce risk, driving technique is not the priority unless it affects risk.

No Re-training programme can operate in isolation It requires co-operation and motivation from both the company drivers and the company.
There are two main groups of drivers that are at the most risk on the road:
Younger drivers experience a high rate of collisions largely because of their inexperience and immaturity. Company drivers, on the other hand experience a high volume of accidents because of their extended mileage and time spend on the road.
Company drivers are bad drivers. They are simple at more risk because of the amount of time they spend on the road.
Drivers that spend extended periods of time of the road can develop poor driving habits. Our corporate driving lessons will help ensure your company drivers are taking all of the necessary precautions.
This is twofold:
Regardless of how much driver training you receives, all drivers are at risk when on the road. The purpose of assessment and correction is to try and reduce these risks to as low a level as possible.
For some drivers this may mean just a few and quite small adjustments to their driving habits. However, for others, it may mean a more extensive approach. The only person who can make these corrections is the driver, through effective driving lessons.
Adjustments to their driving skills can only be made with acceptance and self-motivation. Company drivers that take these driver training courses can feel confident they are doing their best to be safe and responsible drivers.
Corporate driver training and driving lessons is meant to not only provide formal and standardized training that you can provide to all of your company drivers, it also educate drivers about best driving practices to:
Driving statistics tell the truth about what is happening on our roads. The following outlines some important statistics that could impact your company and your company drivers:

Corporate driving school programs cover:
If their company employees can reduce their accident rates insurance premiums should be reduced. An employee, having been involved in an accident, will often take time off work for sick leave. This may be from as little as a couple of weeks to a permanent situation. During this period this company may have to pay incapacity benefits and, in addition, pay the costs of a stand-in employee.
Their vehicle may be damaged and may be out of commission until the repairs are completed. This may mean an additional cost of a rental vehicle or an addition to the fleet. The company may have to pay a substantial part of those repair costs depending on their insurance policy.
In addition to this may be hospital fees, administration fees, legal fees, lost goods and just the sheer inconvenience. Quite often companies bear some of these costs where there is no driving accident. Just the stress of regularly commuting can lead to short and long term incapacity.
Whilst a short re-training program for company drivers will not completely eliminate these potential risks and costs, it should reduce the risks, particularly if that company can enlist all of its drivers in a corporate driving school course with Ultimate Drivers.
