Mercedes-Benz offers free driver training

The Department of Transport dedicated the month of October to create awareness of the importance of transport and the vital role it has in the economy. The theme for 2020 was “Together shaping the future of transport”, with a call from government for businesses to participate and provide safer, affordable, accessible and reliable transport. Mercedes-Benz Trucks has heeded the call by offering free driver training to 160 Mercedes-Benz Actros drivers.

“There is no better way to ensure safety on our roads than to offer the right trucks, operated by professionally equipped drivers. Improved safety is a core pillar of our road efficiency strategy and it is for this reason that our trucks boast advanced safety features such as Active Brake Assist 5, Proximity Control Assist, Lane Keeping Assist and Attention Assist, to name a few. A well-trained driver is hugely beneficial to all road users. We are therefore excited to be offering this training to our valued customers and to actively demonstrate our promise to ensuring greater safety on our roads,” says Maretha Gerber, head of Mercedes-Benz Trucks Southern Africa.

The two-day complimentary TRUCKTraining programme is being offered to selected customers based on their drivers’ skill levels and runs from October to December 2020.
