Grey Fleet Driver Training Course

Grey Fleet Driver Training Course It is difficult to adequately insure for training purposes,  a private vehicle used on company business.  If no company insured vehicle is available for the practical training session,  there are two training formats available.

Option 1

We train on a 1:1 ratio for half a day.   This allows your driver to use their own car.  It also means that busy people only have to give up three hours of their day to complete the course.  

We normally arrange for two people to attend on one day, at one location which can be an office or even the driver's home address.  
Our trainer arrives about 8:45 a.m.    We need a small meeting room or quiet area where he can run a quick (about 40 minutes) theory session from his laptop computer for just one driver.   We then go out on the road.

We start with a vehicle and eyesight check.  The trainee drives for about 25 minutes so that the trainer can assess where he can improve things.  He will then give feedback.  At this stage on a normal course he would give a demonstration drive with commentary to demonstrate how far ahead he is observing, anticipating and planning.  But as the car will not be insured for him to drive, he will do this from the passenger seat while the delegate drives.  The session continues with further tuition and advice.   This should finish around 12 noon.  

At 1:00 p.m. we repeat the format with your second driver finishing at around 4:00 p.m.   

The fee is £330 plus VAT per trainer day which works out at £165 plus VAT per head if we train two drivers on the one day.    Please note we always invoice for a full day so it is best to train two drivers to get best value for money.


Option 2

We run a normal one day part theory- part practical course details here.     A private insurance policy on a private car  will not be adequate for the practical session.  Instead we hire and insure a car for you.  We have a special fleet policy specifically for this purpose.

The instructor can work with up to three delegates per day for a fee of £330 plus VAT .  The all-inclusive price of the car hire, delivery and pick up, fully comprehensive insurance and fuel for the day is £98 plus VAT.   The total fee for the day is £428 plus VAT.  Based on three delegates per trainer this equates to  £143 plus VAT per head.

After the course each driver receives a report and certificate.   If we feel anyone needs further help we will discuss this with them at the time and with you to suggest the way forward.  Usually a further half day in vehicle sorts out any problems.
