Fleet Driver Training
Fleet Driver Training
Defensive Driving and OH&S
Defensive Driving Training is essential for compliance with Australian OH&S regulations. Because fleet vehicles are considered ‘workplaces’ by law, employers and managers must provide information, training, maintenance and supervision to protect employees from health and safety risks.
Avoiding heavy fines is one advantage; avoiding accidents is another. Research shows that fleet vehicles are involved in more crashes than non-fleet vehicles,* but training in Defensive Driving dramatically improves crash statistics. One of our national clients has recorded zero accidents in 6 months since our course; a big improvement on 5 accidents in the 6 months prior.
Our Defensive Driving Training programs ensure your employees are fully competent and equipped to be safe at work. As well as saving lives, Defensive Driver Training improves employee morale, reduces accident damage costs, boosts efficiency and reduces liability risks.
Driving Solutions can arrange a Defensive Driving Program to meet your exact requirements. If you wish to address a particular issue (such as reversing accidents), we can develop a training schedule to resolve it. We are experienced in training for all skill levels and can adapt the program to meet the needs of your team.
Fleets of all sizes are catered for, ranging from 10 individuals to hundreds of employees. Groups of fewer than 10 can book into our scheduled driver training courses.
Your drivers will be kept up-to-date, with our courses covering the latest vehicle technologies, Occupational Health and Safety requirements, and valuable techniques such as Eco-driving and fatigue management. We also offer commercial vehicle driver training.
Train at a location convenient to you. Our courses are available locally and nationally, and we can arrange specific venues to meet your exact requirements. Wherever you prefer to train, our experienced staff will travel to you; unlike other providers, we do not subcontract our services to third-party providers. So you’re assured of Driving Solutions’ superb quality, value and professional service, every time.

“…thanks again for a great day yesterday, it was a pleasure to be involved with a group of dedicated trainers such as yourselves… We would like to thank Robbo for his patience and empathy, it was brilliant to see him win Karen’s confidence and take her through. I have had a brief talk to all who went down and everyone agrees that it was one of the best days we have ever had as a group.”
