Road safety is improving. Data from the Department of Transport shows that fewer people were killed in reported road traffic accidents in the UK in 2013 than they were in 1926, when national records began. However, more than 1,700 people in the UK were still killed in fatal collisions on the roads. And while advances in vehicle technology and road engineering are likely to have contributed to the lower figure, education about driver behaviour remains an essential component in continuing to reduce fatalities on the roads.

The EssentialSkillz DriveWize UK eLearning course has been designed to highlight how driver behaviour can impact road safety, for themselves and for other drivers. The online course explains how accidents can be caused by how the driver behaves, including failing to observe rules of the road, not paying enough attention or being distracted. It details the responsibilities each driver has each time they use a public highway and covers the legal requirements within the UK for ensuring that vehicles are roadworthy. Such checks include having regular MOT tests and maintaining the safe condition of lights, tyres, wheel fixings, bodywork, trailer coupling, loads and all other equipment.

The course also demonstrates safe driving techniques and includes tips and recommendations for safe motorway driving. It highlights the factors that can impede a person’s ability to drive safely, including fatigue, alcohol, poor posture and poor weather conditions.

The EssentialSkillz Drivewize UK eLearning course can be fully customised to meet the needs of your organisation. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to company-specific documentation, all at no extra cost.

So, if you are based in the UK, or have drivers who regularly drive in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, this course is for you.
