IAM Roadsmart has launched a driver-training package with a fixed-price monthly fee.
Fleet operators used to paying for monthly vehicle rentals can sign up for a fully inclusive package that costs 15p per driver per day.
The launch coincides with IAM Roadsmart’s new commercial website, which it says will allow business users the chance to choose from a wide range of on-road training products that deliver compliance, cost savings and safer drivers.
Tony Greenidge, IAM RoadSmart’s business development director, said: “Driver behaviour is the major influencing factor behind the majority of unforeseen costs such as collision damage, unfair wear and tear and poor fuel economy.
“Modern day business relies on real-time interaction meaning drivers are often distracted by phone calls, increasing vehicle technology, time pressure and fatigue. These all combine to heighten the risks for at work drivers and other road users.”
Within IAM RoadSmart’s range of training programmes is the government subsidised eco-driving course. According to the Energy Saving Trust (EST) the long-term cost reduction of the training is the equivalent of a 15p per litre reduction in pump prices.
IAM RoadSmart also offers a portfolio of free resources. This includes a series of white papers covering fleet issues important to business users and affecting road safety.
“With the latest government figures confirming that we are not making inroads into the number of people killed on UK roads no-one associated with road safety can afford to brush the issue under the carpet, as it could not only mean a very expensive prosecution - but also the difference between life and death,” Greenridge added.
