“For many years we have been sending our drivers on courses run by National Advanced Drivers School (NADS) and shall continue to do so with many drivers having now been on all three course levels or at least a refresher course. Feedback from our drivers has been excellent, with comments such as “It was a most enjoyable day; the instructors were fantastic; I learnt a lot about myself and my vehicle.” The course content is both instructive and practical. NADS has been also been accommodating when booked courses end up conflicting with employee business requirements.
From our perspective there are good reasons to continue sending our drivers on these courses – our Health and Safety obligations being a major factor. On top of this, over a period of time, we have seen significant drops in our accident / incident rates, resulting in a positive build up of our self insurance fund. Many drivers have stated that their whole attitude to driving has changed and that, having experienced first-hand the dynamics of vehicle control, they are now safer drivers. We unreservedly recommend the National Advanced Drivers School courses.”
