Customised driver training delivered by professionals
Good driving makes good business sense. It not only protects your staff and saves you money, it also enhances your reputation with your customers and business associates.
Step one: assessing driving risk
We assess your drivers to identify those who are ‘at risk’. This filters out those drivers who don’t need training so you can spend your money wisely on those who do need it.
How we assess driving risk
Step two: analysing training needs
After assessing and identifying drivers who are 'at risk' in step one, we analyse the specific training needs of each of these drivers. We then provide a customised, informed solution that will achieve the right results for individuals, teams, and your company.
Step three: AA Driver Training
We provide high quality tailored in-house professional training programmes and coaching that focus on the specific needs of your drivers to improve control skills, behaviour and safety. We can incorporate your organisational policies that you feel are relevant for your people.

AA Driver Training for real business benefits
Commercial drivers are on the road much more than other drivers, so it’s no surprise that there’s a much higher risk of them being involved in a road crash.
“It’s estimated that work-related crashes – including commuter crashes – account for around half of all workplace deaths. Then there are the thousands more who are injured.”

Who is applicable
AA Driver Training’s simple four-step programme applies to anyone who drives as part of their work.
- Commercial Drivers: professional drivers whose vehicles are operating in a licensed transport service, e.g. truck, van, taxi, bus, and emergency services.
- Employees who drive company-owned or pool vehicles for work, such as sales people and mobile service providers.
- Occasional drivers whose main jobs are not driving for the company but who may drive from time to time between offices using company-owned vehicles.
- Employees who drive their own vehicles for work have a responsibility to ensure both the driver and their vehicle are safe when they’re using their own vehicle for work.

As an employer it’s your responsibility to make sure your staff are safe in the workplace, and under the Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992 (HSE Act) the workplace extends to all vehicles used for work.
You can help contribute to safer roads and reduce your costs by making ‘safer driver training’ part of your company’s code of practice. Your staff will know exactly how much importance you place on keeping them safe on the roads.
