The 'Don't Delay, Start Today' One-Year Training Plan
Read More

One of the biggest issues safety and training managers face: getting drivers to simply take training. Here are some driver training incentive program ideas to help your team finish training faster and focus on safety.

  • Cash bonus monthly or quarterly for finishing lessons before a certain date.
  • Point system for finishing lessons and the points can be used for company merchandise – example 5 points for finished lesson, 10 points for early completion. There are companies that manage these types of incentive programs for you. PRO-TREAD can integrate with with them.
  • Every driver that finishes lessons on time their name goes into a drawing for $50. Maybe for Omaha steaks certificate or a Pilot/Flying-J card.
  • Gift cards for the first five drivers to finish assigned lessons monthly or quarterly.
  • Give away small company logo items: flashlight, tool bag, coffee mug.
  • Recognition board with names listing finished training.
  • Each driver that completes training on time the entire year goes into a drawing for a large prize.
  • Cash prize to every driver with a perfect DOT inspection. We've also heard that actual cash or a separate check how to make these "special." You don't want the prize to get lumped into payroll, which just disappears at the grocery store.
  • Company jacket or pen for certain number of lessons completed.
  • Include training with your safety or fuel-economy bonus plan.
  • Best safety record = best routes.
  • First person to finish training gets first pick of the truck they want next quarter (if you're not leasing to drivers).
