Licence Bureau empowers drivers in bid to increase road safety


Licence Bureau has launched ‘Empowering Driving’ to ‘put personal safety management back in the hands of drivers’.

'Empowering Driving’ is a group training session that provides drivers with tools and strategies to allow them to take onboard more controlled methods towards driving to reduce the risk of road related accident at work.

The session consists of 16 participants and lasts for 2.5 hours, where participants explore subjects such as why people have accidents, the most common incidents and how distraction and speed affect outcomes.

Martin Starkey, training development manager at the Licence Bureau, said: “Empowered Driving has been created to do exactly what it suggests – empower business drivers with the insight and knowledge to make the right decisions they are faced with on a day-to-day basis.

“The benefits to empowering drivers is two-fold, not only does the individual driver take on greater responsibility and understanding of the challenges faced daily as well as the opportunities to enhance their skillsets, but so too do organisations benefit from drivers taking greater personal ownership and responsibility for their actions."

‘Empowered Driving’ also includes 10 bolt-on, 30 minute modules that can be included as part of the experience. These modules include areas such as speed awareness, driver fatigue, electric vehicles, ADAS familiarisation and night driving.
