Corporate driving proficiency training course for light truck drivers

Vehicle Safety for Vans

Your organisation uses utility vehicles (freight transport, <3.5T) This means investing in in-depth training in vehicle control and road traffic safety for your van drivers is the right decision. It helps prevent serious accidents and personal suffering. It also reduces your transport-related overhead costs.

Driving vans requires a sense of responsibility. Traffic is complex and customer-oriented companies strive to respect delivery agreements. This can lead to risky behaviour, such as driving at excessive speed, ignoring the rules of the road and loss of control of the vehicle caused by improper loading. VIAS Institute studies also show that van drivers are more prone to driving under the influence of drink or drugs and using a smartphone without a hands-free kit. The Vehicle Safety for Vans corporate training course gives you the opportunity to decisively address these risks. Choose this course and provide your professional drivers with the right training to drive light trucks and utility vans safely and with greater awareness. The course works according to a three-step plan: raising and increasing awareness, practical training in skid and brake control with vans and evaluation of your drivers’ driving proficiency during a concluding Commentary Drive on the public road.

The Vehicle Safety for Vans training course is independent of the other JESCO vehicle safety training courses and can be adapted to your company and its specific commercial activities. We will be glad to answer your questions in person on 03/866.16.66 or you can request a customised proposal right now.

Vehicle Safety for Vans is also a valuable extension to the JESCO comprehensive Corporate Driving Safety programme. Find out everything you need to know about this corporate road safety training programme.

Vans are an indispensable component of the business community. Safe and aware drivers reduce the risks involved.

When I started the JESCO skid course (for the fun and the thrill!), I could not have guessed that the experience would eventually save my life! What had particularly stuck with me was the tip: “don’t focus on the approaching danger, but look for a way out.”

Years later, I was in a traffic jam on a motorway and saw a truck approaching way too fast in my rear-view mirror. There was no way the driver would still be able to brake. Remembering “find a way out”, I quickly started my car to flee onto the hard shoulder… That truck still drove into me at the trunk and rear door, but at least I was not squashed between the truck in front of me and the oncoming ten-tonne truck.
I am very grateful to JESCO for furthering my understanding of traffic situations and those few simple but potentially life-saving tips. I would therefore advise every driver to take the JESCO course.

Last weekend, I attended the skid and brake control course at Jesco. What an experience! It was not only great learning, but also super fun! We got lots of practice opportunities and good tips and tricks that helped us in our next attempt. You also drive different types of cars (manual, automatic, normal tyres, slicks…) to gain as much experience as possible. I definitely feel that I can now drive more safely in traffic, starting with a correct seating position, which was of course addressed. Instructor Glenn shared his knowledge and experience and encouraged us to push our limits on the track, always with a smile! He himself also gave an occasional demo, which – thanks to the accompanying explanations – you also learn from. In short, it was a great experience! If I get the chance, I will definitely come back! 😉

It was a great return moment this morning. The practice was teachable moment with very friendly and professional guidance from experienced instructors, with before and after summing up the various factors affecting these tasks and neutralising them. There were interactive tasks that definitely made a me understand how important braking, keeping distance, not being distracted,… could be. Closing with a very interesting group discussion from which I definitely learnt. Here I will definitely come back!

I always thought it was useless, until my daughter followed a course at Jesco. It was an super experience and actually something good for every driver 👍

- Melissa Zearo

Wonderful experience: in the skid section, you gain important knowledge on how to react in emergency situations and combined with the commentary drive, you also gain insight into your own wrong driving habits. It is a very cool experience and it can literally save lives!
