IAM clinches UK's biggest driver training deal

BP Amoco has launched the country's biggest driver training programme for its 19,000 UK staff, including fleet and private car drivers. The move comes just weeks before the launch of the Government's road safety strategy, which is expected to contain tough measures to push for a better attitude to safety among fleets.

The ground-breaking BP Amoco scheme, a one-day course offered to all staff with the Institute of Advanced Motorists, is an extension of a programme already running for the firm's fleet drivers. A spokesman for BP Amoco said: 'This scheme reflects our commitment to health and safety. We believe it offers major benefits to our staff and we hope as many as possible take part.'

The IAM will offer BP Amoco staff its defensive driver training course involving concentration, manoeuvrability and awareness of the driving environment.
