The London Borough of Havering
The London Borough of Havering operates a mixed fleet of 220 vehicles. Following a successful pilot programme using The Passenger Travel Service fleet of 45 accessible welfare vehicles and eight large coaches, driver training is now embedded in the culture of the borough and a programme of continuing training aimed at new drivers is in place. Training is also programmed for previously trained drives in those areas that present the greatest risk based on analysis of the most frequent accidents.
This training is being provided in partnership with Peak Performance and the Council is committed to assessing these drivers using an on-line assessment package. Those drivers who present a risk could then be identified to targeted driver training.
