International Road Safety Training Ltd (IRST) provide practical, hands-on advanced driver training for qualified truck drivers and we are the first UK training organisation to offer this. Our range of programmes have been available to truck drivers since 1994 and we specialise in emergency avoidance techniques for the prevention of ‘Jackknifing’ and ‘rollovers’.
Such techniques demonstrate the importance of correct emergency braking with and without the use of ABS systems.
What do IRST courses offer?
Utilising the latest advances in EBS (Electronic Braking Systems), the courses IRST offer are designed to give drivers the advanced skills they are likely to need out on the road as they go about their jobs. They emphasize the importance of drivers paying close attention to the road and its conditions, as well as how their behaviours and decisions can factor in a rollover. At IRST we promote Safe Effective Driving Operations for the Transport Industry, providing specialised Rollover and Anti-Skid training courses. Our Rollover and Anti-Skid training courses are approved by both JAUPT enabling each driver to obtain 7 hours towards their Driver CPC and also by Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
Over 20 years of IRST success
IRST’s training promotes Safe Effective Driving Operations for the Transport Industry. The ‘Lessons for Life’ driving skills give the drivers the knowledge and confidence to act decisively to avoid road accidents caused by skidding, rollovers and jackknifing. Through practical training, with specially equipped vehicles, drivers gain the experience and technique to be able to act correctly before critical situations develop.
