Driving Reverse (20 minutes)
Driving Reverse shows drivers how they can avoid backing crashes and increase safety while parking and in other backing situations.
Driving Distracted (20 minutes)
Our interactive course, Driving Distracted, educates drivers in the four types of distractions and how the brain processes information then, through an interactive demonstration, proves the concept of multitasking to be a myth.
Driving Drowsy (20 minutes)
Driving Drowsy highlights some of the common misconceptions of drivers about fatigued driving and the dangers drivers face. This training course demonstrates how The Smith5Keys® can help you and your drivers remain alert and combat fatigue before trouble happens.

The goal of this course is to review past course content with your certified DriverTrainer, as well as introduce them to techniques and resources they can use to provide initial and refresher training to your fleet’s drivers. The Smith System instructor assesses each trainee’s degree of comfort and competence with the material and works closely with them to improve any areas of deficiency. Each training day involves two, 3-hour Virtual Instructor-led Training sessions.
