Company and grey fleet drivers using lockdown to carry out online training

The numbers of drivers carrying out online driver profiling and e-driver training has risen in the past 2 weeks, with numbers logging in increasing by 18%.

According to Jonathan Mosley, sales and marketing director at E-Training World, the number of completed online courses has gone up since the start of the lockdown, most likely due to people using their time working from home to carry out e-learning.

“Clearly we’re all experiencing extremely tough conditions at the moment but to draw some positives it’s good to see that many drivers are using this time to complete their online profiling and training,” said Mosley.

“It only takes 20 minutes or so for a driver to complete an online risk assessment, or an e-driver training module, with most drivers receiving up to 6 modules to complete each year.

“It appears from our system stats that drivers are focusing some of their time at home to complete as many modules as they can, which is good news for employers if drivers return to the road safer and more aware.”

As well as working directly with fleets large and small, E-Training World also specialises in providing white-labelled systems to companies serving the fleet sector, such as contract hire and fleet management businesses, the insurance sector, rental companies and other driver training providers.

E-Training World’s systems cater for small vans, large vans, HGVs, PCVs and minibuses, and the company also offers an integrated grey fleet management system to remove all of the time-consuming administration of managing driver and vehicle documentation, and compliance.
