DRIVER BEHAVIOUR HAS THE SINGLE BIGGEST IMPACT ON FUEL CONSUMPTION, MAINTENANCE AND SAFETY
The ISM ProDrive Standard is a guarantee that all certificate holders have achieved a very high standard of driving in the areas of Safety and Fuel Efficiency.
“ProDrive Certified drivers have demonstrated the ability to control their vehicle safely and systematically, applying the skills of anticipation and planning, displaying a courteous attitude towards other road users, in a manner that indicates this standard will be maintained in their daily drive”.

what does the training entail?
A standard training session is 2 Hours On Road on a 1:1 basis, usually in the clients own vehicle. Our experience is that drivers usually drive to impress for 20 minutes or so and then settle into their normal driving habit.
We follow the initial assessment with a review and debrief, followed by training concentrating on the areas the driver is underperforming. Areas covered include:
- Hazard Management
- Forward Planning
- Use of Gears
- Road Position
It is important to note that we are not here to teach your employees how to drive, but how to apply a specific system to their driving that will make them safer and more confident on the road, and save money.
employers duty of care
As an employer, you have responsibilities under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act, 2005
“Duty of Care: You must take measures to assure that work-related journeys are safe, members of staff are able to drive safely, and all vehicles and associated equipment are fit for use.
Training, Instruction and Information: You should give your employees proper information and training to protect their safety, health, and welfare. While drivers are responsible for how they drive, you as an employer have duties in helping to make driving for work safer. Directors may be prosecuted for a work-related road collision if it is proven they have not managed safety properly.” (Road Safety Authority)
