DriveTech adds new dimension to GM UK Fleet offering

30 September 2008

DriveTech, the leading independent provider of driver-safety related services to the corporate sector, is to work in partnership with GM UK Fleet to enable its clients to take advantage of the company’s range of driver risk and fleet running cost-reducing services.

This news comes shortly after GM UK Fleet’s recent commitment to support the Department for Transport’s ‘Driving for Better Business’ initiative, which is aiming to promote the virtues of, and business case for, targeted driver risk management programmes.

DriveTech managing director, Jim Kirkwood, said: “Driving down road risk and related fleet running costs should be of great concern to anybody responsible for vehicle fleets, irrespective of whether the vehicles are company funded or not. With our wide range of FleetSafe products and services we are confident of being able to demonstrate quantifiable benefits to GM UK Fleet customers, in whatever commercial sector they operate.”

As part of its commitment to the partnership, DriveTech will be buying up to 250 Corsa SXi models over the next 18 months for its newly launched ‘Advantage’ learner driver training programme.
