Informing your driver behaviour training with telematics

Informing your driver behaviour training with telematics

Telematics provides a ready-made platform for long-term driver behaviour management success.


Driver training is always going to be a positive experience in a fleet-based environment.

The rewards of improving a driver's behaviour when they are behind the wheel are too integral to the commercial success of a transport and logistics company for any level of training not to be beneficial in some way.

Even a small amount of training can instigate changes in driver behaviour that are beneficial to the fleet they work for, both with regard to improved road safety and more effective use of diesel, which ultimately allows a transport company to manage its fuel spend more effectively.

However, as these key pillars of a successful fleet management - efficiency and road safety - are so intrinsically linked to driver behaviour training, why not ensure that the potential of a training scheme is maximised?

If a small investment in training can drive small improvements in safety and fuel economy, imagine what can happen when a holistic and targeted approach to driver behaviour management is introduced to a company. Telematics systems and the processes that support them are ready-made and easy-to-use platforms that initiate widespread fleet improvements via driver behaviour managements.

Strong return on investment

Any training is seen as an investment. An investment in telematics can equally help all fleet companies, whether they run public transport, own a host of delivery vehicles or send HGVs across international borders, because the fleet in question gets to set its own parameters.

A fleet manager will have access to all the raw data they need to see a complete picture of the entire company's fleet activities. This data can allow the fleet manager to make the informed choices in regard to driver behaviour training that can give a business the edge.

Custom and relevant reports

The vital statistics that telematics can help with include:

  • Speed - A vehicle's maximum speed, incidents of breaking speed limits, a breakdown of time spent in speed bands
  • Engine revs - RPMs that are beyond the most efficient range for each individual vehicle, max RPM, time in RPM bands
  • Fuel economy - Per journey and average fuel economy
  • Braking - Incidents of harsh braking, the total number of brake applications, braking distance
  • Engine time - Total amount of engine idling

However, the success of any driver behaviour training scheme will depend on its engagement with the drivers themselves and not the sheer comprehensiveness of the resources. Telematics solves this issue by making it very easy for drivers to understand what they must do to initiate improvements. After the initial data collection period, each and every staff member can have their own individual benchmark for all of the driver performance categories. This creates unique, customisable and engaging avenues of attainable improvement for both driver and fleet.

Long-term success

The perfect blend of technological attention to detail and engaging simplicity that telematics-informed driver behaviour management training brings to any transport business ensures that a modest initial investment leads to long-term improvement.

Indeed, the very same technology that informed the initial driver benchmarks and training avenues can be used to track their continual progress. Not only does this guarantee training remains at the front of a driver's mind, it also identifies the next opportunities for improvement and gives continuous feedback until all bad habits are eradicated.
