Advertisement feature from DriveTech



DriveTech, a business wholly owned by the AA, serves the business driver community in the UK and internationally providing a range of driver risk management and driver training services, and is also the UK's largest provider of police diversionary training courses working with 34 police forces across the country.

Within its dedicated fleet risk management offering, DriveTech offers a comprehensive range of driver and driver risk management services ​designed to help businesses demonstrate their duty of care to their driving community, as well as reducing costs and saving lives. The business operates in the UK and with international fleets (multi-country) too through DriveTech International. It is proud of its associations with its customers - some blue-chip and leading organisations amongst them - and strives to add real value – helping to reduce costs associated with vehicle collisions not to mention saving lives, improving road safety and driver behaviour and providing eco-driving benefits too.

Included in the services available include fleet risk health checks, licence checking, online driver assessments and e-learning training modules (with new improved applications coming on stream in 2020), on road driver coaching, workshops and bespoke company driver events. In addition, the business offers driver quality management programmes in the professional driver (bus and coach) sector and has also recently launched an End Point Assessment (apprentice drivers in bus coach and tram sector).

The DriveTech website at www.drivetech.co.uk provides much more information on its range of products and services of course, and also has a wealth of other supporting information of benefit to the fleet manager or colleagues in finance, HR and Health & Safety. In addition to customer case studies, the website has a ‘News & Resources’ section where there is a comprehensive range of whitepapers to stimulate discussion and inform fleet relevant debates, as well a host of helpful driver advisories. They are free to access and help to promote good road safety and driver behaviour communications within any professional business driving community. Recently published Whitepapers include “Autonomous vehicles – where does this leave the driver?” and “ADAS – attraction or distraction?” (ADAS – Advanced Driver Assistance Systems). Visitors can access via the website – search for “RESOURCES” using the search bar on the site.

A member of leading associations including CPT (Confederation of Passenger Transport), FORS (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme), CILT (Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport UK) and ADLV (Association for Driving Licence Verification), and with comprehensive ISO standards accreditations, DriveTech is committed to the driver risk and people safety market with new developments planned to strengthen its market-leading position during 2020 and beyond.
