International Pharmaceutical Company Learn How To Take Control

Company Driver Skid Control Training

International Pharmaceutical company, NSF came to Driver Skills for a corporate driver training day that would deliver both safety and entertainment. The corporate driving event took place at our York venue and included skid control training and on-road advanced driving.

NSF International provide a comprehensive range of support services for the pharmaceutical industry. They have an outstanding international reputation in the field of pharmaceutical quality management and safety is a key part of their values. The team at NSF regularly drive many miles as part of their roles and so we put together a driving programme that would give the team confidence on the road.

Driver Training can be a Fun and Entertaining way to Bring a Team Together

The team at NSF spent two days with us to achieve higher levels of safety by completing our Skid Pan Training and Defensive Driver Training programmes. They wanted a driving programme to increase the safety of their team while having a fun , relaxed day out.  They were delighted with the result, here are some comments from senior members of the team:

 “My management team and myself had the pleasure of some on the road driver awareness training from Lionel and his team. The feedback from my team was extremely good. Areas to improve were pointed out and the general safety and defensive driving approach made a very valuable reminder. This should be made compulsory for all drivers on a regular basis to keep our roads safer. Many thanks, Mike”  Mike Halliday - Executive Vice President

“Thank you for your e-mail with photographs and driver reports. Despite some members of the team being very nervous, everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable day and found it very beneficial.  Lionel and the team looked after us all very well so please do pass on our sincere thanks to all concerned.”  Stella Pearson-Smith Office Manager

A Tailor Made Day For A Public Customer And Her Team

A Private Event with Exclusive Use of Track and Facilities

Not everyone who comes to Driver Skills is from a large company or organisation. While our Public Events days are no longer a regular part of our regular schedule, we often get groups of individuals with a desire to learn more booking a bespoke learning day with Driver Skills.

One particular client had a very specific requirement for keeping drivers safe. She is disabled and employs a team of personal assistants to facilitate her everyday life.  She came to us for a relaxed day where her team could learn defensive driving skills, including driving her adapted VW Transporter van.

Whilst everyone was already a competent driver, the client was due to travel to Europe and two of her team were to take turns driving on the long journey.  We tailor made a day which included the theory of how driving abroad differs from the UK, especially on motorways. The team completed our Defensive Driving, Skid Pan Training and ABS training courses, plus practicing manoeuvres in a large vehicle.

 “I know my team are now safer drivers, thank you Driver Skills” -  Team Manager

 “It was a really enjoyable day and despite being a bit scared at first, the instructors put me at ease. I found it hard to 'lose control' but we practised until I got it! Thanks” - Team Member

 “I feel much more aware of what is going on around me now when I’m driving.” - Team Member

  “Wow, I never thought I could do that!” - Team Member
