What our customers are saying...

"Positive Results!"

The SAFED Instructor course gave me the tools to be able to confidently deliver the SAFED Initial and Refresher course to Cat C and Cat C+E drivers in line with the requirements of JAUPT. Prior to the course I did not have an understanding of SAFED or its principals so it was a real eye opener. As a reasonably inexperienced professional driver myself it has certainly improved my skills and knowledge through both classroom and practical sessions. I am now confident training driver’s with far more years’ experience behind the wheel than me, with positive results. It is possible to change an experienced drivers behaviour to include new technology.
