Drive economically and protect
The most effective accident prevention system is behind the steering wheel - the driver. It is important for the driver to be able to anticipate, remain calm and confident in critical situations and stay in control of the vehicle.
This is why MAN offers practical training courses for truck and bus drivers - and has been striking more and more of a chord with customers with its range of seminars on offer. In Germany alone, between 3000 and 4000 drivers are currently taking part in seminars every year. MAN ProfiDrive® is now offering its services in more than 25 countries, currently employing a total of 69 trainers.
By professionals for professionals: The objective is to achieve a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 10 % and promote gentler vehicle handling on the road.

Advanced training in accordance with the German law governing qualification of professional drivers (BKrFQG)
Since the law governing the qualification of professional drivers (BKrFQG) came into force in Germany, everyone who drives a vehicle in a professional capacity must undertake regular retraining. The BKrFQG obliges driving personnel to pass a 35-hour advanced training course, consisting of 5 modules of 7 hours each, every five years. Participation is mandatory, and having Community Code 95 in one's driving licence provides proof of this.
For the advanced training course, there are different theory and practice modules to choose from, of which 5 modules must be passed:
|1||Motor vehicle technology and economical driving (theory)|
|2||Economical driving (practice)|
|3||Securing a load (theory and practice)|
