Fleet training course
The LDC, DVSA accredited, Fleet Driver Training Course is aimed at those ADIs wishing to take their professionalism a stage further into the field of coaching professional drivers. We aim to build on your existing skills and knowledge by introducing and encouraging new skills which will enable you to successfully qualify as a DVSA Fleet Trainer.
You must hold a valid ADI registration certificate and be able to drive to a very advanced level.
The course duration is 5 days and consists of 5 modules, all of which must be passed in order to qualify. We normally run the course Monday-Friday however the course can be flexible to meet both your personal and business needs and split into 5 separate days.
The 5 course modules are:
- Group presentation
- Report writing
- Advanced driving
Why choose the Fleet Qualification?
- More than 1 in 3 road traffic incidents involve someone driving a work related vehicle.
- The fleet market is the fastest growing sector in the ADI industry.
- The work is highly challenging and rewarding.
- Fleet work is usually on weekdays and in office hours.
- Large fleet companies who offer courses to fleet organisations will normally only consider ADIs who are on the fleet register.
