Coaching The® Van Driver™ 3

Many organizations mistakenly assume that van driving is no different than driving a personal car, and they expect their employees (or volunteers) to assume van-driving responsibilities without any training. The fact is that most commercial vans are very different than passenger cars. They are bigger, heavier, have larger blind spots, and require longer following and stopping distances.

Transporting Passengers With Special Needs™ 2

With the increasing focus on the safe transportation of passengers with impairments, today's drivers must be trained as professionals, and schooled not only in defensive driving techniques, but also in safe passenger assistance procedures. Both public and private organizations that transport special needs passengers are responsible for training their drivers to perform their jobs as professionals, keeping the passengers' safety and dignity in mind at all times.
