To help keep your employees and other road users safe, the DriveWize course gives information on everything from planning a journey and understanding stopping distances to protecting vulnerable cyclists and making driving as eco-friendly as possible. It covers the legal requirements for driving on UK roads, and how to carry out basic safety checks before driving to make sure a vehicle is roadworthy. It is equally important to ensure that people driving for work are fit to drive and understand what factors could make them unfit, for example, fatigue, alcohol consumption or certain medical conditions.
This eLearning course also outlines the importance of staying focused on the road, maintaining a safe speed and avoiding dangerous actions, such as driving aggressively. Practising good driving technique and etiquette is critical at all times, but particularly when driving in poor weather conditions where visibility and road conditions might be unsafe. The course highlights advice for staff on how to keep themselves safe in these situations, as well as when driving long distances and at night, or during a breakdown or accident.
Is it for me?
The course is suitable for employees who already have a full driving licence. It is appropriate for those recently qualified as well as those with more experience. Those who have taken advanced motoring courses might find the course useful to refresh their knowledge.

The course is not a substitute for in-vehicle training and assessment. And although the information on safe driving is of broad applicability, the course information is specific to UK road laws, so employees driving in other countries would need additional information.
Users are required to take a final test consisting of 10 default questions. The default pass mark is 70%.
The course administrator within your organisation can:
- Change the pass mark
- Implement the random test question feature which selects 10 questions from a bank of 20
- Specify that more than 10 questions must be answered (up to the full bank of 20 questions)
On successful completion of the test, users can download and print off a certificate.
