Driving Dynamics Inc., a provider of driver and safety training for fleet-based organizations throughout North America announced the rollout of DriveWiseAdvantage (DriveWise). Offered to the U.S. market, it is the latest course under the company’s DriverAdvantage behind-the-wheel brand for individuals who operate light-to-medium duty vehicles. DriveWise is an on-road behavior and skills coaching service designed to help drivers acknowledge, address and correct poor driving habits, risky behaviors and diminished skills.
In advance of the hands-on coaching session learners are required to complete three online assignments: the company’s One Second Advantage elearning lesson, which provides an overview of fundamental driver safety skills and techniques along with a driver behavioral risk assessment and a safety skills self-assessment.
Prepared with the results of these assignments, the Driving Dynamics’ certified coach will conduct a two-to-one, driver-to-coach personalized session centered on the specific needs of each learner. With the coach’s guidance, learners complete an “acknowledging influencing factors” exercise and a personal awareness and action plan. During the in-vehicle portion two learners rotate driving responsibilities under the direction of the coach, with all three completing an on-road observation card. Using the information gathered, the coach submits a final observation summary report and makes it, along with other supporting documents, available electronically to the driver and his or her designated employer management personnel.
Also through DriveGlobalAdvantage, a related Driving Dynamics service, fleets which have a global footprint and want to provide a managed international standard and a similar and consistent coaching experience, regardless of country or language, Driving Dynamics will facilitate access to DriveTech International’s training partner network. This international network currently has a reach that extends to more than 90 countries and is available in more than 30 languages.
