The AA’s driver training and risk management arm, Drivetech, has launched a free online course that educates business drivers who currently need to drive for work.

The online course takes around 20 minutes and covers topics such as why driving for work is important; the legal obligations; driver health and wellbeing; the vehicle in use – in particular driving a private vehicle on business; the journey and tasks involved; mitigating risk; and the current official guidance and behaviours on coronavirus.

Head of marketing at Drivetech, Colin Paterson, commented: “In times of national and global crisis, it is important that we pull together to help each other wherever possible. This free-to-complete course is hopefully one important gesture in the right direction that can help us manage during crisis as safely and as sensibly as possible – we want to help everyone to take extra care.”
