COVID-19: Learn About Smith System’s Commitment to Your Safety and Health

Passenger Vehicles

Drivers of passenger vehicles are carrying the most precious cargo — human beings. Their safety is paramount.

Passenger vehicles come with a unique set of challenges. Drivers of these vehicles deal with frequent stops, strict time constraints and unpredictable pedestrians. They have the added stress of protecting their employers’ brand by ensuring that all passengers have a positive experience. The Smith System methodology can help your drivers get their passengers where they need to be — safely and on time.

What Training Is Right for Me?


One of Smith System’s most popular courses, DriverDirect features training both in the classroom and behind the wheel. Certified instructors first introduce safe-driving concepts in a classroom setting and then guide class participants as they put them into practice on the road. Smith System even helps with scheduling and logistics.

Advanced Backing

Parking. Driving in tight spaces. Backing up. These are among the most challenging maneuvers for drivers of passenger vehicles to get right. In fact, backing crashes represent 30% to 60% of the total crashes for most fleets. That’s why we devote an entire day to these tasks in our Advanced Backing course, which includes reversing, parking and close-quarter maneuvering.
