Governments & Municipalities

Employees in this sector work for the public good. Keep them safe with proper driver safety training.

From police and fire departments to parks and recreation and other forms of city transportation, Smith System understands the unique needs facing today’s governments and municipalities. Smith System can reduce crash-related expenses while at the same time lowering fuel and maintenance costs. Our driver safety training reduces crashes, lowers costs and saves lives, no matter what kind of vehicles are in your fleet. 

What Training Is Right for Me?


Government employees, like police officers and bus drivers, are often in stressful situations on the road. Smith System’s DriverDirect course can help your drivers prepare for these situations and handle them well. This course combines classroom and behind-the-wheel training to equip your drivers with the knowledge and skills to keep themselves and civilians safe. Our instructors will travel to you and will handle the planning and coordinating of your city’s training.

Your training budget might be tight, but you don’t want to forgo driver safety training. An in-house trainer may be the best option for you. By certifying one or more of your employees as a driver trainer, you can transfer that knowledge throughout your fleet. This cost-effective training option will also save your department money thanks to fewer fleet crashes. Smith System’s DriverTrainer safety course can equip your employees with the knowledge and skills to keep your department safe.
