Driver Training

When it comes to driving an automobile it's important to remember that not all cars are created equal. The way you maneuver on an exit ramp varies depending on whether you're in a Civic, F150, 15 Passenger Van or a Bus. Just because you know how to drive one vehicle safely doesn't mean you're automatically proficient in all, despite having that little thing called a driver's license. 

This is why driver training is vital for your ministry. Whether you run a bus route or occasionally use the church van for youth group outings, educating the people who drive your vehicles is a must and documenting that education is just as important. 

As part of our Ministry Risk Management System, we make driver training simple and easy. Log onto our website and select the the Ministry Risk Management Tab. In the drop down menu you will see Church Video Library. Select the Auto Safety Video section.

Underneath each video you will see a form asking you to enter the names of the people who are watching the video along with your church information. This is where the documentation part comes in. If your church van was in an accident involving severe injuries or fatalities, the first thing a lawyer is going to ask is, "Did you do any sort of driver training? If so, can you prove it? What documented evidence do you have?" If you've watched our videos, and submitted the names of the drivers who did the training you can answer yes. If your answer is no, you now have a valid reason to sit in front of the computer and watch videos! 

So gather up your drivers, document their training and in the mean time enjoy the bus driver training video below!

Welcome to our Risk Management Minute Blog! My name is Jessica and I joined the First Insurance Group team in 2008. I began working in the Church Division in 2009 and as part of my job began to learn about the specific needs Churches face in regards to Risk Management. We have made it our goal to not only supply you with relevant information, but to take the work out of risk management by creating forms for you to print and use. Have questions on a topic we have yet to cover? Let me know! I will gladly do the research and provide any information I can.
