LGV Driver Training
The effective operation of an LGV fleet is complex, covering both the skills of the driver and the processes that support them.
Getting it right is important because it goes straight to the bottom line. ADS-trained drivers have achieved fuel savings of 10 per cent and more.
ADS helps LGV drivers to maintain their skills and meet their CPC obligations, ensuring efficient and safe operation, while providing consultancy services to help fleet managers to maintain required processes and documentation.
The services include:
- Driver assessment and training including driver profiling and assessment, training recommendations and provision, tachograph training, banksman training and ADR (Abstract of Drivers Record) training
- Fleet services including fleet risk assessment, management and documentation reviews and Tachograph services.
Courses are tailored to meet your specific requirements, occasionally in conjunction with selected strategic partners to ensure that you have access to the highest levels of specialist expertise.
The current trial of longer semi-trailers (up to 15.65m) has created a need for a course to improve drivers' awareness of the characteristics of these rear-steer units, before they drive them in anger; so in one instance it was delivered at the manufacturer’s premises on collection day! Well, we always aim to fit in with our customer's needs......
Driver CPC services. Remember, if you are running vehicles of 3.5 tonnes or over CPC applies to you. It affects all holders of C, C1, CE and C1E licences.
Affected drivers need to complete a minimum of 35 hours of periodic training every five years. Our courses will help to ensure you meet this requirement. Contact us or click here for full details.
Company CPC Holder
The company employing the drivers must also have the necessary person(s) with the appropriate skills and knowledge to administer the Driver CPC scheme effectively to avoid infringements being recorded, which could have serious implications for the business.
ADS have consultants who can ensure clients are fully compliant with the legislation and maximise the benefits for the business.
