As a responsible business or organisation you may have identified that your employees would benefit from further driver training, however, releasing employees from the organisation to undertake driver training may not be an option.
TTC understands that your staff are valuable assets, so you need them engaged in value-adding activities. Driver training while considered a worthy investment can lead to down-time. This is why TTC offers online driver training, delivered through an efficient eLearning platform aimed at keeping down-time to an absolute minimum.
Drivers can undertake their online driver training anywhere where they have a computer and access to the Internet. The eLearning units are divided into easy bite-sized chunks and drivers can dip in and out until the unit or suite of online driver training courses is completed.
Each online driver training unit, of which there are three, are easy to follow and culminate in an assessment to validate learning. Each of the units is optional and drivers can be referred automatically as part of the initial driver profiling process or later, where a situation dictates.
TTC DriverProtect® Premium+ eLearning units consist of:
1. Rules of the road
Safe driving is considered a life-skill yet most drivers assume the Highway Code is something that is learned for the driving test rather than knowledge that will be utilised on every journey with a need to keep up to date with the changes.
The Highway Code is revised periodically, rules change, new signs appear and new advice and guidance added. Drivers on the other hand rarely revise their knowledge when it comes to driving, meaning that there is a potential risk. Ignorance of the law is not accepted as an excuse in Court.
This element of TTC DriverProtect® eLearning module, Rules of the Road is ideal for drivers who would like to:
- refresh and improve their knowledge and understanding of the rules of the road, including road signs and markings;
- develop an enhanced appreciation of speed management knowledge;
- reinforce their understanding and need to maintain safe following distances;
- attain greater fuel savings by understanding how to apply eco-safe driving techniques;
- gain a better understanding of driver and vehicle documentation required for legal compliance;
- gain a better understanding of loading vehicles safely and legally.
This eLearning module is divided into five easy to follow units, comprising of:
- Road signs and markings;
- Speed limits;
- Safety margins;
- Driver & vehicle documents;
- Vehicle loading.
Once a driver has completed all of the units they undertake a multiple choice assessment that validates their understanding of the five units.

2. Safer Driving Policy
Businesses that take managing workplace road safety seriously usually have a robust policy that communicates to staff what is expected from them as well as how the business supports the driver.
An essential element of managing workplace road safety is to ensure staff are aware of the policy and this is often done by requiring employees to sign a declaration, however, would you know whether the policy is read by everyone let alone understood?
This element of TTC DriverProtect® eLearning module, Safer Driving Policy is ideal for organisations who want their staff to:
- gain a better understanding of their company’s safe driving policy;
- understand driver responsibilities;
- be able to comply with and follow appropriate company procedure;
- understand how the company will support the driver.
Once a driver has completed this unit they undertake a multiple choice assessment that validates their understanding.
With TTC DriverProtect® eLearning module business can be assured that staff are not only aware of the essential elements of their policy but validation is conducted via a multiple choice assessment.

3. Reducing Driving Stress
Driving can be stressful, especially in today’s busy traffic, but a driver’s ability to cope is personal to the individual and varies from driver to driver. Certain elements are beyond the drivers control so coping strategies are called for, however, many things that could cause stress are within the scope of a driver to limit or manage.
