Red Driving School achieves DVSA fleet training provider status

Red Driving School’s chief executive Ian McIntosh

Red Driving School has become a fully accredited DVSA (Driver and Vehicles Standards Agency) fleet training provider. 

The accreditation means that ADIs who pass the Red fleet training course can apply to the DVSA to be added to the fleet register.

Red Driving School’s chief executive Ian McIntosh (pictured) said: “Our accreditation as a fleet training provider compliments our position as the leading driving instructor trainer and gives us the opportunity to quickly strengthen our nationwide presence.

“This is a significant step in the development of Red Driving School and will allow us to enter the corporate driver training market with a number advantages over our competitors.”

Red hopes the initiative will expand its current team of fleet registered trainers and deliver fleet driver training services to clients across the UK.

It will initially offer the fleet training course to their existing franchisees and may look to expand its offering by training external ADIs in the future. 

The certification course will last for four days and include both classroom and in-car training.

At the end of the course, participants will be examined by Red’s own fully qualified and accredited fleet training team. The course will be held in numerous regional locations across the UK.
