The Cdi programme, which forms part of a wider training seminar, allows drivers to use an interactive computer system to test their skills in potential accident situations before going out on the road for driver training. BSM claims the system is the UK's first fully-interactive computer-based system aimed at improving drivers' hazard perception skills.
A driver training CD-ROM has been launched by Zurich Insurance and the Institute of Advanced Motorists aimed at achieving similar goals, but there are major differences between the systems. BSM's system, for example, is used within a seminar with a tutor on hand, rather than being bought by companies for drivers to work through on their own.
The BSM training package costs around £175 per person including a seminar, one-to-one training, home study literature and risk management advice. This price does, however, vary according to fleet size.
