Please note that a video recording device which can also capture audio for recorded discussion will be required to record learners when completing their assessments.

According to the Word Health Organization, road traffic injuries caused an estimated 1.35million deaths worldwide in 2016, with some of the highest fatality rates being recorded in Russia and Middle Eastern countries.

More people are killed or injured in at-work road accidents than in all other workplace accidents put together, so defensive driving skills are essential for at work drivers to reduce their risk of being involved in an accident.
