Training the right driving skills

It’s the higher-level driving skills such as visual search, hazard perception and risk management that keep your drivers safe on the road. Hazard perception directly relates to crash-risk, and risk management teaches better decision-making.

Research-based innovation

Developed by road-safety researchers and psychologists who are experts in their fields, Fleetcoach is based on scientific research.

Such as the international research that’s shown how video‐based simulations, like you find in Fleetcoach, are an effective way for drivers to improve those critical higher-level driving skills². Those skills are then directly transferable to real-life situations on the road.

"[Fleetcoach] also got the thumbs up from our Learning & Development team as being one of the best examples of simulated learning they've seen."

Julie Barber, Safety and Wellbeing Specialist, Kiwibank

Designed around how adults learn

Throughout the Fleetcoach training, your drivers receive feedback based on best-practice principles. Long-lasting change is created by using a coaching approach, where the learner is an active participant, not a passive listener.

There’s a branch of psychology we use called Positive Psychology. Enjoyment makes learners more likely to take in and recall new information. If your drivers engage with the training, they’ll gain the full benefits – and you’ll get the best return on your investment.

Health and wellbeing

Health and wellbeing don’t sit in isolation from driving. Research shows that the way people drive is directly related to how they live their lives – and how they do their work³.

An inclusive wellbeing approach means drivers get to know their own triggers, to honestly answer questions about risk as it applies to them, and also get them thinking about how they can contribute to a company culture that supports safety on the roads.
