The DriveWise Post-Collision course is specifically aimed at drivers who have been involved in a collision, whether they were at fault or not. The DriveWise coach will discuss the incident(s) and then deliver a bespoke training course to address any underlying causes. This will enable the driver to help themself to reduce the risk of being involved in similar incidents in the future.
This one-day course will begin with a discussion session where the delegate can articulate their thoughts about the incident(s), giving the DriveWise coach a thorough understanding of how the incident occurred, as well as the opportunity to discuss how the delegate was feeling prior to the collision and what pressures they might have been under on the days leading up to the incident.
The practical training is aimed at building the confidence of the driver and giving input where necessary to ensure the risks of similar incidents are reduced. It will also aim to build the delegate’s driving confidence and understanding of UK rules and regulations, to help delegates drive safely and efficiently on UK roads.
The course is split into theory and practical sessions.
The theory element covers key information on the following:
- Root cause analysis
- State of mind
- Contributing factors
- What can I do differently?
- Blame culture
- Confidence building
The practical element of post-collision training is designed to give advice on how to remove the delegate from potentially dangerous situations. Where possible the crash site will be revisited, and the events of the incident can be discussed further, with training guidance offered to help ensure the incident doesn’t occur again.
Personal Plan – the course concludes with the coach and driver reviewing the driver’s achievements and collaboratively developing an ongoing driving plan.
The DriveWise coach will set improvement goals during the post-training feedback session to give the delegate targets to reduce their exposure to risk.
- Understand the root cause of an incident
- Formulate a driving plan to reduce the risk of further incidents
- Build driver confidence, knowledge and skills
