Vehicle Familiarisation Training Course

Vehicle Familiarisation

Your drivers will spend around 70% of their time behind the wheel, so it is vital that they take the time to get to know their vehicles inside and out. This one-day Vehicle Familiarisation course gives drivers a comprehensive overview of each vehicle and will guide them through important checks that could help prevent any potential problems occurring, helping to avoid down-time and any unnecessary additional operational costs.

The aim of this course is to ensure that your drivers understand the basic checks that are required to preserve the life and efficiency of the vehicle. The course mixes practical skill sessions with fundamental knowledge that prepare the driver for the day to day operation and maintenance of your Volvo truck.
