CV Show 2012: AA Drivetech warns against ‘box-ticking’

The Driver CPC should not be treated as a ‘tick the box’ exercise but as a managed process to drive out avoidable cost, AA Drivetech has warned. The company is using the CV Show (stand 3C52) to showcase its expanded range of approved Driver CPC courses that include a mix of classroom and in-cab training.

“We want our courses to deliver real business benefits and not just tick the Driver CPC box,” says Jason Vallint, director of AA DriveTech’s commercial and passenger vehicle division. “A tailored approach can reduce third party claims, fuel costs and maintenance, so the training pays for itself.”

Research among 200 drivers of commercial and passenger vehicles by AA Drivetech found that 29% believed they were responsible for their own career development, while 41% thought it was their employers’ responsibility.

Attitudes towards the Driver CPC among the drivers were, unsurprisingly, generally negative and much work remains to be done to convince them of its potential benefits.

AA Drivetech recently acquired Nationwide Training, adding 4×4 and off-road training to its portfolio. Also on show will be the AA’s 1905 Renault Phaeton veteran car which has the number plate AA1 and is insured for £1m.
