IMTD New Driver Initiative Award

An initiative which has been introduced by an individual or organisation and challenges new drivers to become better and safer and moves beyond that of simple skills based training. This award might well recognise an initiative which is aimed at both pre and novice drivers. Such an initiative would need to demonstrate its structure, delivery and the way in which it is monitored along with any evaluation which has taken place and demonstrate its significance in behaviour change/ knowledge gain.

(The 2019 winner was RED Driving School)

IMTD Individual Driver Trainer of the Year Award

This award seeks to find an exceptional driver trainer who would if challenged be able to demonstrate that they were signed up to a Code of Conduct, has undertaken and or delivered continuous professional development and has delivered a high level of customer satisfaction. A trainer who does more than teach people to drive but also helps others within the profession. They may well have introduced a new way of teaching pupils to drive or introduced an innovative way in which they have been able to help those who are in some way challenged in terms of the driving task.

(The 2019 winner was Tracey Hammett)

IMTD Training Industry Award

This award is to recognise a driver/or other training company in the widest possible field of activity not just being confined to cars but also LGV’s, PCV’s, minibuses and motorcycling but other forms of driver education and road safety practices etc. It is available to reward sustained initiatives in all forms of training which have been monitored and evaluated and can indicate levels of behavioural change and casualty reduction. Such an award would recognise sustainability and longevity within the industry.

(The 2019 winner was Peeks Driver Training)

Sadly the 2020 awards where cancelled due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.
