Ministerial seal of approval for IAM's new CD-ROM

FLEET driver training was at the top of the agenda at the Institute of Advanced Motorists' annual lunch as the organisation launched a new CD-ROM. The initiative received a ministerial seal of approval from transport minister and principal guest John Bowis OBE, who said company car drivers faced higher risks of an accident than private drivers.

'This CD-ROM is particularly welcome because company car drivers are more inclined to be involved in an accident and more likely to drive at speed so there is certainly a need for training,' said Bowis. 'The amount of risk company car drivers are exposed to means that the reduction of that risk will pay big dividends.'

The CD-ROM, called 'Advanced Driver Training - Your Licence to Thrill' - has been sponsored by Zurich Insurance which believes it will result in lower premiums for policyholders (Fleet News December 6).
