Slow Speed Manouevring 

Vehicles being driven at under 20km an hour are the most likely to have an accident in built up areas.

Specifically, car parks and reversing are both high on the agenda in regards to workplace vehicle incidents. The cost of these minor accidents blows out to thousands and thousands of dollars for large fleet companies, when it can be very easily reduced through developing the slow speed driving skills of their people. This intensive course covers all the aspects of slow speed manoeuvring during our half day program.
