Many organizations mistakenly assume that van driving is no different than driving a personal car, and they expect their employees (or volunteers) to assume van-driving responsibilities without any training. The fact is that most commercial vans are very different than passengers cars. They are bigger, heavier, have larger blind spots, and require longer following and stopping distances. Training drivers to compensate for these differences can help keep them on the road and on the job. Coaching the Van Driver II is a comprehensive training program that meets that need.
Coaching the Van Driver II is an updated version of the original program introduced in 1991. The program features new visuals in the video presentation, a new Leader's Guide, and Response Book, and a set of transparencies which replace the original slides.
