Safer drivers can upgrade their qualifications

Drivers who pass RoSPA’s advanced driving test for at-work motorists can now upgrade their qualification.

For the first time, successful candidates who have carried out three days of RoadTest training with the safety charity can apply to Edexcel to have their qualification recognised at BTEC Level Three at no extra cost.

“We are extremely proud of RoadTest, which was developed as the first advanced driving test to specifically meet the needs of business drivers.

"It sets the benchmark standard for ‘at-work’ driving, and takes into consideration the realities faced by those who use the road for work purposes,” said Simon Protano, head of RoSPA driver and fleet solutions.

The programme, which can be spread over three years, covers key issues related to occupational road risk, including drink and drugs, mobile phones, speed, fatigue, and posture, seat support and head restraints.
