SharpDrive is an engaging online driver training system that will help improve your people’s knowledge of and attitude to driving. The
short, interactive programme is a proactive way you can help keep your business and your drivers safe.
Since commercial drivers are on the road for twice as long as everyone else, it’s not surprising that 50% of all crashes are work related.
By reducing the number of road incidents your people are involved in, you’ll be saving on legal costs and fines, sick pay, production
delays, damage to your reputation and insurance costs. You’ll also be setting the standard for commercial drivers, and helping to make our
roads safer for everyone.
"SharpDrive Online training has been key in our overall Driver Safety Programme and since introducing online training and a number of other strategies our accident rate has dropped 18.6% in one year."
Jenny seddon, business services manager, plunket
