'I am very excited at the proposition of bringing my organisational skills to the FDTA, where I see my role as a facilitator. I am very keen on risk management and its effect on company car drivers,' he said. The FDTA continues to make progress towards establishing an independently audited qualification for fleet driver trainers, a goal which has received backing from the Driving Standards Agency. Membership of the FDTA now stands at 18 leading training companies, with Driving Development becoming the latest member, and a number of other companies have recently shown interest in joining the association.
