Fleet Assessment

Fleet Assessment by MDT

If you offer a job which entails the use of a company vehicle are you aware of the standard of driving of your employee?

If your employee has an accident whilst going about his / her every day duties how would this affect your company?

If your employee drives around aggressively and with lack of awareness how may that affect your business?

The outcome of the above standard of driving can lead to:

  • Higher insurance premiums.
  • Increased fuel consumption.
  • Increased wear and tear costs for your vehicle.
  • Complaints regarding the standard of driving from members of the public.
  • Worst case scenario, the business owners being held liable under the Corporate Manslaughter Act if a fatality occurred whilst the company driver was going about their daily business in the company vehicle.

Manchester Driver Training provides a 2 hour Fleet Driver Risk Training Assessment (From £170).

This compromises of the following:

What does the assessment entail?

A Fleet Risk Presentation, held on a one-to-one basis in the vehicle with each driver. (Making the driver aware of things such as the Corporate Manslaughter Act, facts and figures on company car driver accidents.)

A vehicle condition report. (Questions to the driver on how he/she would undertake various checks of his/her vehicle e.g. if the coolant was at the correct level.)

An assessment drive taken on various types of road whereby a risk profile would be created. Any risks would be addressed at the time through remedial coaching, with the aim to make the driver aware of his/her standard of driving.

Each driver would have a written report on his/her individual training session. (The reports are forwarded by email to the company concerned, after the training session has taken place.)
