The training bar needs setting higher, according to Fleet Source’s Nick Caesari. But quality driver training should not be a privilege.
“With some 68 billion miles by commercial vehicles on Britain’s roads in 2018* and an ever-increasing number of vulnerable road users, as one of the largest fleet training and auditing providers in the UK, we recognise it’s our responsibility to help fleet operators tackle the ever-increasing challenges of our busy road networks.
“We want to set the training bar higher to reduce the number of collisions on our busy roads and ultimately help save lives. The most expensive training doesn’t always mean the best and our industry is rife with inconsistent pricing and quality.
“To help towards this goal, our newly-launched ‘Essentials’ range brings Driver CPC training costs down to as little as £350 per course – or just £14.58 per driver**.”
