Workplace Driver Safety (Ireland)
About this course
This course is designed to increase awareness of how your behaviour on the road can affect how safe a driver you are. It highlights the importance of road safety, identify the behaviours that affect road safety and increase driver safety awareness.
On successful completion of the test users can download and print a certificate.
The course lasts approximately 45 minutes.
Users are required to take a final test consisting of 10 default questions. The default pass mark is 70%
The course administrator within your organisation can:
- Change the pass mark
- Implement the random test question feature which selects 10 questions from a bank of 20.
- Can specify that more than 10 questions must be answered (up to the full bank of 20 questions)
The course is suitable for employees who already have a full driving licence. It is appropriate for those recently qualified as well as those with more experience. Those who have taken advanced motoring courses might find less to learn from the course, but could still find it useful as a refresher.
The course is not a substitute for in-vehicle training and assessment where a risk assessment of a job role suggests this would be needed. Although the information on safe driving is of broad applicability, the course has been designed with Irish legislation in mind, and so employees driving in other countries would need additional information.
Outlines your responsibilities to make sure that a vehicle is roadworthy and legal before starting a journey, and that you are fit to drive. Describes your responsibilities for safe behaviours while driving. Explains different concerns associated with different road types. Considers specific driving techniques and good practice.
