Fleet Van Driver Toolkits

21 June 2021

Working with the Highways England Commercial Vehicle Incident Prevention Team, Driving for Better Business is producing a free toolkit for van drivers – containing driver information cards to assist van drivers and fleet operators in dispelling uncertainty and myth.

These help businesses to implement best practice to reduce costs, improve operating conditions and ensure safe and legal vehicles – and, importantly, driver wellbeing.
