Eurovia’s approach to graduate and student placement drivers

1 October 2019

Story from Driving for Better Business.

Eurovia has been piloting a new approach to young driver training aimed at young graduates and student placement drivers.

As part of its ongoing commitment to road risk management, Eurovia began a review of the experiences of young graduate and student placement drivers who had joined the company in 2018.

Recognising that many of this intake had not driven commercial vehicles before, the company has designed a programme to ensure this year’s intake of young drivers are both confident and capable.

In June, the company introduced a driver assessment as part of its induction process for graduates and work placement students. The assessments include support and guidance, and are used to determine who may need further training. In some cases, this has meant implementing alternative travel arrangements.
