Behaviour Based Driving
Manage frustration, minimize stress and control anger that can lead to road rage, increased vehicle incidents, repair costs, and lost employee hours.
Thinking Driver is an internationally recognized program that addresses driver attitude in an effective and respectful way by utilizing advanced psychological and counseling techniques to change the way drivers see the actions of others and develop more effective responses. This program is engaging and interactive with drivers discussing driving challenges and solutions based on personal motivations.
