Passenger Vans

Regardless of the size of your company, school, or church, each driver responsible for your van has the potential to create that one accident that can jeopardize your firm. Vans tend to be bulky, potentially unstable, and unfamiliar to many drivers. Passenger vans especially are inherently top heavy and potentially dangerous, especially when loaded with people and cargo.

The Center for Transportation Safety can help you reduce your risk by:

  • Evaluating potential drivers and letting you know their skills
  • Training your drivers to develop good driving habits
  • Letting your drivers experience emergency driving situations in
    a controlled environment
Let us help you train your drivers and reduce accidents.
