Well done- Fleet services provider triumphs

Said DriveTech MD, Jim Kirkwood: “We’re very pleased to be recognised by a body which represents the whole of the transportation industry, not just the sector in which DriveTech operates. Clearly, safety is top of the agenda for all of those who work in the transportation industry, and those who have responsibility for safely guiding to their destinations planes, trains and ships are obviously trained to an extremely high level.“We are trying to apply the same sort of philosophy to those who drive vehicles for a living, as well helping private motorists make better informed decisions while behind the wheel.”The ITM issued the award on the basis of DriveTech’s diverse involvement in driver education across the board. DriveTech says that apart from servicing the wide-ranging needs of some 280 corporate fleet customers, it now operates some 20 different schemes on behalf of more than a dozen different police forces up and down the country, whereby drivers can opt for an educational workshop in preference to receiving a fine and points on their licence.
