Safe driving: Contents of the e-learning course

The course content of digital driver instruction is designed to train drivers in the safe use of company vehicles and how to behave in the event of an accident. The contents are derived from DGUV Regulation 70 and take into account, among other things, load securing, traffic regulations and the safety equipment of the vehicle. Correct driving behavior, for example in special road and weather conditions or during overtaking maneuvers, is also part of the training content of the instruction. And the specifics of e-vehicles and the charging process are also part of the e-learning course.

The UVV driver instruction e-learning course is divided into five clear chapters
Driver instruction according to UVV must also be given before driving for the first time.

Legal basis for the annual driver training

Regular driver training in accordance with UVV is required by law and is one of the central owner liability obligations in the fleet. The legal basis for instruction is provided by the German Occupational Health and Safety Act (ArbSchG), the German Ordinance on Industrial Safety and Health (BetrSichV) and the regulations of the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV). The latter issues the so-called accident prevention regulations (UVV) to reduce the risk of accidents to a minimum. Whether it’s a company car or a pool vehicle, companies must not only provide their employees with safe company vehicles as work equipment, but also train them in their safe use at least once a year, according to DGUV Regulation 70. If the vehicle is replaced during the year, additional training is required. Fleet managers who comply with this obligation only irregularly or not at all risk incurring severe penalties.

Through the UVV driver training with Carano, we have found a way to ensure with minimal effort that all company car users can participate in the annual training. Our drivers are automatically prompted and it is only when they have overdue appointments that I am notified and can intervene if necessary. This saves time and nerves.
