Training scheme aims at sporty fleet drivers

COMPANIES operating fleets which include sporty or high performance models can now take advantage of a new driver-training scheme.

Fleets will be offered one-to-one instruction for drivers which includes on-road and track sessions aimed at improving the handling and technical abilities of drivers.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has launched the scheme, which is being run by a team of 10 people based around the country.

Charles Davis, head of driver and fleet solutions at RoSPA, said: 'Businesses with high performance cars in their fleets should consider this service as part of their policy for managing occupational road risk. The days we offer are not about driving at speed.'
