The Road Safety Training Programme aims to contribute to Pillar 3 of the UN Road Safety Strategy and SDG Goal 3, target 3.6: “By 2030, halve the number of global deaths and injuries from road traffic accidents.”

Successful participants will have requisite skills, knowledge and attitudes to train others on the safe, efficient and effective operation of light vehicles in a variety of contexts and risk environments.



Upon successful completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Apply, with precision, advanced safe driving knowledge, skills and attitudes to safely, efficiently and comfortably convey passengers and goods in a mixture of urban and rural driving environments.
  • Apply, organize and articulate, with precision and without supervision, advanced driving instruction, coaching and evaluation techniques;
  • Demonstrate proficiency with real life examples.

Course Methodology

Course Methodology: 

Our methods are based on traffic psychology, experiential learning and the Goals for Driver Education (GDE) framework. Learners are encouraged throughout the course to engage in critical self-reflection to support experiential learning and behaviour change. Knowledge, skills and attitude competencies will be imparted to learners through the following methods:

  • performance-based experiential learning in practical settings.
  • self-reflection to maximize experiential learning.


  • Formative evaluation will be conducted throughout the course to provide feedback, encourage honest self-assessment and highlight experiential learning opportunities.
  • Summative Evaluation is conducted through practical and written performance checks that enable learners to demonstrate their skills and knowledge to the required standard. 


  • Certification is conditional on learners tailoring a course training plan and delivering an driver training course within three months of the ToT course completion.
  • Certification is valid for three years
