4×4 Fleet Training
On road driver training is essential for everyone who drives for work whether in their own vehicle or a company provided one. As 4×4 specialists, we can tailor the courses to the model specification and will cover all of the requirements for PUWER relating to on-road use. Our off-road 4×4 courses can also be added to ensure drivers are fully compliant.
4×4 Fleet Driver Training from £135/person:
Courses can be tailored to your specific needs and can be undertaken from either your workplace or one of our venues across the UK. Training is carried out in the driver’s own vehicle. Prices start from £400/day, up to 3 people can be trained per day.
For companies with a large number of drivers, we can provide 4×4 driving assessments with up to 6 drivers per day. This can be an ideal way to interview potential candidates, provide an action plan for training or provide evidence of experience, skills and knowledge for drivers who do not require ‘novice’ training.
Many 4×4 operators, especially in larger fleets, will rarely leave hard track, though their requirement for all year round operation means they have little choice but to run pick-up trucks or similar. As with 4×4, the requirement for training under PUWER is placed upon employers, while operators need to understand both the capabilities and limitations of their vehicles. Due to the larger size, weight and higher centre of gravity, these vehicles can often be more dangerous in winter conditions than a standard car if not used correctly. Our clients have asked us to provide a 4×4 course for these drivers, who don’t need to go ‘off-road’, but do need to understand grip, steering and braking limitations, as well as how all of the modern technology (ABS, ESP/ESC and traction control) work in their vehicles.
Safe And Fuel Efficient Driving Courses for commercial 4×4 drivers:
As we all know – 4×4’s aren’t particularly fuel efficient, so if your company runs commercial 4×4’s (any vehicle with a load carrying area qualifies) you should run on road driver training from SAFED.
Defensive and eco-driving techniques are essential for 4×4 drivers who have to deal with dynamics and high centres of gravity similar to those in commercial vans.
The Safe And Fuel Efficient Driving programme is a fuel efficiency training course designed for the Department for Transport to help your drivers save, on average, 10% on their fuel consumption. The course has proven that drivers can learn simple techniques and save fuel and reduce their accident rate while improving vehicle sympathy with no impact on journey times.
