Predicted growth in online driver training for 2011

10 February 2011

A growth in online driver risk management and e-driver training solutions among fleet operators is being predicted for 2011 as businesses look to improve efficiency and keep their costs low over the coming 12 months.

“Many fleet operators have put off their driver risk assessments and training due to the recession,” said Graham Hurdle, managing director of E-Training World.

“However, we’ve spoken to a large number who say that this year they can’t wait any longer, and must take action. But with budgets being tight they are looking for the most cost-effective, simplest and beneficial route – and this is to do it online.”

Hurdle says that adopting a web-based route for both driver risk assessments and training not only involves a relatively low cost outlay – it also saves time and money by reducing accidents, avoiding unnecessary ‘in vehicle’ training and improving fuel consumption.

“Now companies are using our online risk assessments to determine with precision what form of training, if any, is required. This can reduce on-road training to less than 10 per cent of fleet drivers which is a massive saving."
