New e-learning for fixed penalty offences

18 April 2012

For many companies, licence checking is an integral part of fleet management. Ensuring that every driver is adequately qualified for their type of vehicle is critically important and any fixed penalty endorsements uncovered by the check can act as an early-warning indicator. But what happens when the licence check brings to light a new endorsement for, say, speeding, using a mobile phone or running a red light? Should action be taken and if so, what type of action is appropriate?

Leading online driver assessment and education company, a2om, believe that companies do have a responsibility to act on new information brought to light by licence checks and, in autumn, 2012 they will be launching a new ‘Internal Intervention’ platform for companies who wish to proactively engage with staff who receive fixed penalty endorsements. The system will include e-learning modules covering the most common offences; speeding, failing to obey traffic signals and using a mobile phone whilst driving. Each module has a short assessment at the end to ensure the content has been read and absorbed.
