RED Driving School achieves accredited DVSA Fleet Training provider status and enters the Fleet Driver Training market
RED Driving School is delighted to announce that it is now a fully accredited DVSA (Driver and Vehicles Standards Agency) Fleet Training provider. This move will allow RED to diversify as a business and will create new opportunities for their instructors.
RED has been evaluated by the DVSA and achieved full accreditation for the provision of Fleet Training, meaning that those ADIs who pass the RED Fleet Training Course can apply to the DVSA to be added to the fleet register.
RED recognises that employers across the UK, both large and small, have a duty of care to ensure that employees who drive as part of their role in the business, do so safely and this initiative will allow RED to expand its current team of fleet registered trainers and deliver Fleet Driver Training services to clients across the country.
RED will initially offer the fleet training course to their existing franchisees and may look to expand its offering by training external ADIs in the future.
Ian McIntosh, CEO at RED Driving School says, “our accreditation as a Fleet Training provider compliments our position as the leading driving instructor trainer and gives us the opportunity to quickly strengthen our nationwide presence.
This is a significant step in the development of RED Driving School and will allow us to enter the corporate driver training market with a number advantages over our competitors.”
The RED Fleet certification course will last for four days and include both classroom and in-car training. At the end of the course, participants will be examined by RED’s own fully qualified and accredited Fleet Training Team. The course will be held in numerous regional locations across the UK.
