In-Vehicle Training

We offer flexible initial and refresher driver training delivered throughout the UK and Ireland in all vehicle types. RED courses are based around the training needs of the individual and are delivered by specialist RED Fleet trainers. All courses are designed and delivered in house by our industry experts.

The course proposed is a half day or full day (advanced driver training to include any specific areas of training such as speed awareness, parking & manoeuvring and fuel-save) in duration and begins with a briefing and objective setting session; this also provides the opportunity for delegates to offer any specific concerns relating to their general driving or any of the course content.

Setting the scene for any training course is of paramount importance and this particular briefing will cover the reasons for the course which may include the trainee’s driving performance or may be as part of a company’s H&S policy.

As with all Network Rail practical training courses, this course includes a pre course Network Rail Driver Profiler (on-line NRDP) and post training, a full course report will be e-mailed directly to the participant and course administrator as required. This ensures that full H&S Duty of Care responsibilities are covered.


Following the briefing the course will commence with an eyesight and vehicle check. Our trainer will then take to the wheel to demonstrate many of the aspects covered in the briefing and to further set the scene. Following this the trainee will then drive for the remainder of the session, taking breaks where required, covering the below;

  • Developing the driver’s expertise in managing the high risk environment of urban driving and reducing the likelihood of being involved in a preventable driving incident.
  • Other road types will also be covered depending on the geographical location of the training session and the driver’s personal needs.
  • The coaching session will develop the perceptual skills outlined in the presentation and to provide ample opportunities to explore the principles of keeping space, identifying risk and keeping visible and communicating with other road users.


Any driver who requires ‘Standard’ driver training who may need additional help with any area of driving skills, to include speed awareness, fuel-save, parking & manoeuvring or a general refresher driver training course.

Any driver who is using an unfamiliar vehicle, example a driver moving up from a car to a van (LCV) and requires training / assessment in the vehicle.


A full and detailed report will be produced post training / assessment for the driver, course booker and Road Fleet team as required.
