If anyone within a company drives on company business, the employer is obliged to perform a risk assessment of the activity. If the business has 5 or more employees, they are obliged to have this risk assessment written down. This could include delivery van drivers, company car drivers and even occasional drivers who are using their own vehicle – the employer still has a ‘duty of care’ to protect its employees and the general public.
Not all companies want a full day’s training for each of their drivers when the cost of the training and the time needed is taken into account. For that reason, we now offer van driver and company car driver risk assessments.
These company driver assessments take 1.5hrs and include licence and eyesight check, vehicle safety checks, journey planning, highway code and in-car driving assessment. For each candidate, a full written report and risk assessment will be completed along with any recommendations.

This can all be done on a 1:1, 2:1 or 3:1 basis and over a full or half day. Again that all depends on your requirements.
If the candidates have a history of speeding fines, we will design a speed awareness related training session. If they have a history of collisons, we can design a course with that in mind.
