The training by the road safety charity is free to fleet managers and takes a day to complete at locations throughout the country.

Brake’s company driver safety training day held on February 17 was also a success.A Brake spokeswoman said: ‘The training day was attended by 17 fleet managers, company health and safety officers and volunteers who will be using the PowerPoint presentation and resources they were given to deliver awareness-raising sessions to drivers within their own and other local companies.’
