Q. What is the DT Fleet Driver Training Plan
DT’s Fleet Driver Training Plan is a unique online driver training programme where drivers can logon 24/7 to refresh and upskill their driving knowledge through theory-based study modules. The plan has been specifically designed for businesses to improve driver safety, competency and compliance. Company and driver accounts are available. Company account owners purchase driver accounts to monitor and supervise driver training and produce documents and reports for compliance. Drivers can also purchase accounts to study the modules, undertake tests, practice and record their progress and print their results.
