Defensive Driver Training Passenger vehicles

The only proven training method adopted internationally that reduces crashes and improves driving standards. Adopted as the benchmark by organizations, this training combines a theoretical component which is supported by practical sessions in the drivers own vehicle. The driver is then assessed and measured against a dashboard report the nature of which provides feedback to all the relevant parties. Detailed graphs and analysis provide SHEQ management teams with the tools needed to measure driver behaviour and performance.

Defensive Off road and 4x4 Training

4x4 and SUV s form a large part of company fleets. Many company drivers spend large amounts of time on dirt roads therefore training in these conditions is crucial. Challenges faced on tar surfaced roads are different to sand and dirt therefore the understanding of critical elements, not dealt with in a vehicles technology are taught and understood.

Collision avoidance and Skid Control

The Skid Monster is used as an effective tool to train drivers in risk prevention. The practicalcomponent re-enforces the theory which is designed to focus on  the “10 habits”

  • Prevention
  • Detection,
  • correction of skids

inspires confidence and guarantees results. Highly recommended that a defensive drivingcourse is done prior to this program.

Driver Assessments – Passenger & Commercial

Some drivers have obtained their licences in vehicles that were only driven for their drivers test, these vehicles are driven without a load and for the purposes of obtaining their drivers licenses therefore an in-vehicle drivingassessment is a per-requisite. It will determine what skills are lacking and whether or not the driver has knowledge of relevant road regulations and standards. In expensive HGV s and buses this is even more important.

Hi-Performance & Precision Driving

This driver training programme is not only for the enthusiast but also for organisations who require a specific set of skills in their line of duty. Amongst others these include emergency response crews and law enforcement authorities. Dedicated facilities on a circuit allow for safe coaching and deployment of appropriate vehicles and equipment.

Fuel Efficient & Eco Driving – Passenger and Commercial

The impact of carbon emissions on the environment is a powerful argument to reduce the burning of fossil fuels. To reduce fuel consumption with a well-considered eco-driving program is an added benefit as it saves thousands of Rands in direct costs as well as peripheral costs associated with the running of a fleet. A mere 3 litres/100km will on average save 1 tonne of CO2 and which combined with fuel saved  could result in savings of up to 15% on the fuel costs – this could be as high at  R3000.00 p.a. on light vehicles  and  exceeding R 10,000 in HGV’s . Multiply that by 100 vehicles and this training is a must.

Safety Awareness orientation

Many organisations have embraced road safety as a core value. Whilst their driving compliment may be limited they have under-scored the value of safety by delivering via workshops and safety days specific components that demonstration and promote safe driving. Seatbelt convincers and demonstrations of the effects of impaired vision of driving under the influence of alcohol are “key convincers”.

K53 – Driving Academy

The shortcomings of the present system becomes apparent when newly licensed drivers take to the road. That, in addition to the high level of fraud, has resulted in companies being forced to offer remedial training to incumbent staff. MasterDrive has embarked on a process of accrediting approved organisations so as to better facilitate the integration of “affected” drivers into the workforce.

Defensive Driving – Commercial and HGV

Several manufactures offer training on the purchase of their vehicles but few, if any, focus on the application of Defensive Driving, This training done “one on one” not only reduces crashes (or severity  of same) it  also improves fuel consumption and boosts driver morale and confidence. Adapted to the challenges facing SA drivers this program is a “must have” for Companies and motivates Insurers to evaluate their risk objectively

HGV – Vehicle Technology applications

With mandatory fitment of active safety features such as ABS and ESP few drivers ever have the benefit of being exposed to the benefits of these – until they are involved in a collision. This training is not only educational but totally experiential as drivers are able to, in a practical environment, see how the laws of physics challenge road users.
