A new online training course designed to help foreign fleet drivers stay safe on UK roads has been launched by Licence Bureau.
The company says the MyUK course is designed for foreign drivers that are either new to driving in the UK or are currently working for a company based abroad and are about to start working and driving here.
The two-hour course - delivered via Cisco WebEx - covers topics including: road classification; speed limits; driving and the law; driving etiquette; roundabouts, approaches and signalling; re-fuelling; bus lanes and UK weather.
Licence Bureau says the course supports companies who have a responsibility for their employees' duty of care while they are driving a company vehicle.
The firm's training and sales manager Martin Starkey said: "Driving in the UK can be a daunting and scary experience for someone who hasn't done it before or who has been in the country for just a few weeks.
"MyUK equips drivers with the best knowledge possible, so that risk is reduced and they feel comfortable and confident from the minute they get behind the wheel in the UK."
