This program is based on the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator and will provide the drivers with the tools and understanding that will lead to a change in their driver behaviour. Drivers learn that the driving environment is constantly changing and that our driver personalities have an immense contribution as to how we interpret information.

Techniques used to manage this change can have a significant impact on a driver’s chances of being able to mitigate risk.
