With the support of Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC), Toyota Motor Vietnam (TMV) implements the “Toyota Safe Driving Training Program” with the aim of equipping key officers of traffic management agencies in Vietnam - the Road and Railway Traffic Police Department – Ministry of Public Security and TMV’s key instructors with Toyota-standard safety driving knowledge and skills. This program is a long-term program of TMV which includes many phases and lasts as of 2017.
The first phase of the program consists of 2 training courses for 8 trainees (including 3 traffic police instructors from the Road and Railway Traffic Police Department – Ministry of Public Security and 5 TMV instructors) under the instruction of leading chief instructor Mr. Toshio Kanno from TMC – who has 33 years of working experience as a test driver for Toyota. The first training course was successfully carried out during 5th – 7th Aug, 2014, covering topics such as: inspection of vehicle structure before driving, proper driving posture, and how to more accurately gauge vehicles distance... The second training course will be conducted in Jan 2015 for evaluation, examination and advanced supplementation as well as reorientation of training contents from the first training course.
As plan, in the coming time, this knowledge and skills will be widely popularized to employees of TMV, dealers, traffic police officers, then customers and the public in order to contribute to building a safer traffic society for Vietnam.
