Online or Practical Driver Training?
Focusing on the key issue
Very few incidents occur due to drivers lacking skill.
Studies prove that the majority of incidents are attitude and behaviour based (e.g. fatigue, inattention, auto-pilot, over-confidence etc.).
It goes without saying then that an effective driver training program, whether online training or practical, must focus on attitude and behaviours to have impact.
SharpDrive is deliberately focused toward's best outcomes - attitudes and behaviours.
This is the reason our clients experience drastically improved outcomes from implementing SharpDrive training.
Practical driver training without question has a place, however online does provide some succinct advantages.
- Immediate - Drivers can be trained prior to receiving the car keys as opposed to waiting until the next practical course is available.
- Scalable - entire fleets can be trained in a matter of days.
- Consistent - drivers receive the same quality training each and every time.
- Timing - Drivers can complete the training in their downtime - or as it suits.
- Any time, any place, any device.
A mixed approach?
SharpDrive partners with a number of practical driver trainers throughout Australia and New Zealand.
Some of our clients provide only online driver training across their entire fleets.
Others may provide SharpDrive as a baseline for their entire fleet, and bring in practical components for smaller groups or certain skill areas - such as for repeat offenders, or for those requiring specialist skills such as off-road training.
Either way, Online is the lowest cost way to achieve the best results up-front. From there, practical training can be the icing on the cake.
Does ONLINE work?
