Behind the wheel training is administered by registered and qualified professionals and the programs are designed to meet the specific needs of your company and drivers.
The training can include one, or a combination, of the following types:
• Closed Course – this training is typically done in your corporate parking lot or at a location used by the training group in that area. This type of training is well suited for teaching specialized driving techniques that may not be familiar to the drivers and can be practiced in an isolated, non-threatening environment. Examples include skid training as well as backing, maneuvering and parking in close quartered environments.
• On-the-Road – this training is generally designed to first assess the driver and secondly address areas of concern by either the instructor or the driver. Some or all of the following learning objectives are covered in the on-the-road training:
Conditions affecting driving
Positional driving including stopping and following distance
Effective communication with other road users
Keys of defensive driving
Specific targeted driving tips such as city driving, turns and intersections for urban based drivers and highway driving including lane selection passing and following distances and awareness of potential dangers for rural based drivers
Behind the wheel training can be done in a one-on-one format or in a group format. Generally in the group format one student will drive while one or two students ride in the back and listen to, and absorb, the instructors comments and tips. The students rotate from observer to driver to experience the training from both the driving and passenger role and will benefit greatly from the different benefits. The group training is typically more cost-effective.
Behind the wheel training and pricing is very dependent on the location and availability of services in the desired locations of the company.
