Driver training a key issue at Fleet Show 2000

UP TO the minute road safety advice and information on driver training - one of the hottest issues in fleet since the Government announced its road safety strategy this week - will be on offer to Fleet Show 2000 visitors at the NEC Birmingham from April 4-6. Paul Beresford, sales and marketing director for Defensive Driver Training, which will be exhibiting at the show, believes driver training will soon become a health and safety requirement.

He said: 'It does cost money but if you target the people who do have more accidents then you end up saving money. We work with companies over a long time and come up with a long-term strategy together which suits their training needs. The strategy makes sure the company is spending money cost-effectively.' Drive & Survive has also booked show space, as have Driving Services and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

Don't forget to make the most of your visit to the biggest fleet event in the UK by visiting The Hub - the new central networking centre where you can use the free Visitor Appointment Service to book appointments with exhibitors. Do this now by visiting the Fleet Show website and booking your appointment in advance.
