This program develops defensive driving routines for commercial drivers considering a pre-trip, trip, and post-trip sequence. We have devised an exclusive training program aimed at analyzing and generating solutions for the most relevant traffic-related problems specifically related to commercial motor vehicles.
The theoretical and hands-on training activities will develop drivers’ professional behavior, educating them for better driving and more technical, efficient, and safer road traffic performance.
Participating in the theoretical module allows drivers to:
Be aware of the consequences of traffic crashes.
Understand the responsibility of driving a commercial motor vehicle.
Analyze the unit’s characteristics, configuration, and features.
Understand the importance of vehicle maintenance and regular inspections.
Identify, assess, predict, and control traffic risks.
Study the factors that may impair driving skills.
Analyze vehicle dynamics and limitations.
Understand the importance of using the vehicle’s safety features.
Hands-on training consists of:
Practicing efficient and safe driving techniques for complex and highly complex maneuvers in reduced space, performed in a test track.
Assessment and training conducted on public roadways, aimed at improving driving performance in traffic.
Duration of the activity
Theoretical module: 4 hours (tailored to fit your Company’s specific needs)
Hands-on module: Each driver will spend 20-30 minutes practicing on a test track and/or 30-40 minutes on public roadways.
Reports and certificates
An individual performance report and attendance certificate will be issued for each participant.
Theoretical Module: Venue or classroom large enough for the number of participants, equipped with multimedia projector, whiteboard or flipchart.
Hands-on Module: Vehicle(s) similar to the one(s) used by participants in their daily work activities and a test track or area to set up the hands-on exercises.
