Driver Safety Course for Cars, Vans & Small Trucks
This course is made for drivers to improve their driving skills. Death, injuries, and property damage in the U.S. must be reduced. It is extremely important to the citizens of this country to identify and implement all reasonable means to reduce human suffering and property loss that result from vehicle crashes. The attitudes and skills of drivers must be improved, and through effective driving safety programs, this can be accomplished.
Driver Safety Course for Large Trucks and Buses
Drivers who want to improve their driving skills and learn how large trucks and buses can interact on our roadways will want to take this course. The course is specifically designed for professional drivers of large commercial vehicles. Topics covered include: Space Management, Passing and Lane Changing, Drug and Alcohol Effects on Traffic Safety, Trip Inspections, and more. This program will help professionals improve their skills and enhance their training to make them sharper, more aware drivers.
Attendees will be presented with material on the safe operation of powered industrial trucks, also known as fork trucks, lift trucks or forklifts.
