3rd East Africa Driver Recognition Programme

14 February 2018

Fleet Forum is pleased to announce the 3rd East Africa Driver Recognition Programme. Registration is open to all humanitarian organisations in East Africa, and we invite you to register before 15th March 2018. Qualifying rounds will begin in April. The final event, the Driving Champions Final, will take place in September 2018 in Kenya.

The Driver Recognition Programme recognises the driver who is an inspiring example for others in terms of road safety and health, cost efficiency and friendliness. It also acknowledges the corresponding organisation who understands the critical role the drivers play in delivery of aid and development and take the time to show their appreciation of their drivers.

Programme Set-Up

The competition will consist of the following:

  • Participating organisations nominate their drivers of light vehicles (sedans / 4×4) -- we encourage as many drivers to enter the first round as possible;
  • Country qualifying rounds take place, in which driving skills and driver knowledge are tested;
  • The best drivers from different countries compete in the final round to be the best driver and win the annual Driver Award. The final event simulates a ‘typical day in the life of a driver’.
