Defensive Driver Training for High-Risk and Hazardous Environments

Castor Vali’s Defensive Driver Training courses are designed and delivered by industry professionals who provide the benefit of their broad experience of driver training throughout the world’s most austere and complex environments.

Why Defensive Driver Training is Necessary

“In Nigeria between 2019-2021 there were 106,256 road traffic collisions resulting in 14,773 fatalities.”

Global Upfront Newspapers

A leading cause of injury and death throughout the African continent is Road Traffic Accidents (RTAs). NGOs and international companies have the duty of care to ensure that the best possible training is afforded to their drivers to mitigate the significant risks associated with road movement, whilst providing the necessary peace of mind to their staff and other passengers.

“The continent suffers from the highest road traffic fatality rate than any other region – despite having less than five per cent of the world’s registered vehicles”.
