Overview

This Driving online training course was created by industry specialists to provide you with a thorough understanding of the Driving subject. The Driving Course is divided into easy-to-understand modules that break down each topic and ensure that all of our students have a comprehensive learning experience. Even the most safety-conscious driver is at risk of engaging in driving behaviors that could easily lead to a crash on today’s crowded highways. Change in weather or road conditions, or suddenly driving too fast becomes a risk factor. Impaired performance because of fatigue looking and not seeing or, failing to look, inattention or daydreaming or an unexpected external distraction can all lead to a truck crash.

Our Safe Driving Practices course focuses on raising the consciousness of drivers about common driving errors and providing valuable driving tips through easily accessible tools.

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of accidental deaths and injuries in the United States. Many businesses and agencies have recognized the direct benefits of safe driving programs, not only in the number of lives saved and injuries reduced, but also in the decreased hospitalization costs, lost production time, vehicle downtime, and insurance rates.

This Driving course will help you recognize what it means to be a “safe” driver and will help you identify areas you may need to focus on to increase your own safe driving skills. Using safe choices and habits, you will learn how to make good choices for safety and how to develop good habits to avoid the bad choices other drivers may make.

  • FREE PDF and Hard Copy Certificate in ZERO Expenditure

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
