Truck Smart driver training is a seven-hour training course for all commercial HGV drivers, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to operate safe and roadworthy vehicles.
Truck Smart focuses on the importance of driving roadworthy HGVs and the role of the driver in ensuring that vehicles and loads are safe and legal always.
Truck Smart tracks a series of five themes. The five simple messages are echoed throughout both the Truck Smart training course and the accompanying Fleet Manager Toolkit. They are:

Check it: walk around before, during and after journeys
Load it: plan and position your load safely
Secure it: secure your load correctly
Report it: record problems and take action
