Online Training Courses for the Hardest Job in Trucking
Urban driving is one of the most challenging and stressful jobs in trucking. The distractions, route-finding, small spaces, aggressive drivers, and distracted pedestrians all require hyper-aware truck drivers and high levels of skills. So training for urban drivers will be a lot more intensive than for freeway driving. ITI provides three different courses on Urban Driving for different vehicle types. Each course lays out the critical points of safely managing the urban driving environment. Each city driving lesson arms drivers with the information they need to drive safely and effectively.
Urban Driving: Traffic and Distractions
Urban Driving training from ITI lays out critical points of safely managing the urban driving environment. For each vehicle configuration, the courses provide specific information about urban driving and defensive driving practices, including:
- Safely handling congested, stop/start traffic
- Managing turns with larger vehicles
- Navigating prescribed routes
- Avoiding avoid issues with other motorists, pedestrians and curbside hazards
To reduce the likelihood of accidents, these new lessons promote safety among drivers that operate exclusively in those environments and drivers that have to transition from the relative safety of highways to city streets.
