The AA will be represented by its driver risk management and road safety arm, AA DriveTech, at the CV Show, which takes place between April 9th and 11th at the NEC Birmingham.
AA DriveTech will be promoting its wide range of Driver CPC training course products, including the latest additions of Winter Driving Workshop and Application of Roadside Safety & Working Practices
Given the recent bad weather, many drivers will be aware of the need for specialist skills to stay safe in wintery conditions. The 3.5 hour workshop is designed to prepare drivers for all the dangers winter driving can bring from snow, ice, wind, fog and rain. Participants will brush up on their skills in hazard, visual and knowledge perception as well as studying defensive driving techniques and skid control.
The Application of Roadside Safety & Working Practices is a 7-hour specialist Driver CPC and IVR (Institute of Vehicle Recovery) accredited course that deals with working at the roadside for breakdown and recovery technicians. It covers the correct procedures for safely approaching breakdowns if intending to repair or to carry out direct recoveries; being able to carry out a dynamic risk assessment prior to repairing or safely recovering casualty vehicles
Being able to offer a flexible range of interesting and informative Driver CPC courses is valuable to both companies and drivers.

Jason Vallint, of AA DriveTech, said: “We are really pleased that we are extending the range of courses we can offer. Winter driving is particularly relevant given the recent bad weather we have had. Staying safe in snow and ice requires honed skills and an awareness of the dangers so we are hopeful the module will be appealing to drivers looking to complete their Driver CPC with interesting and relevant courses.”
