MAN ProfiDrive® – We train the future

Competitiveness, efficiency and safety are becoming increasingly important in the everyday working environment of fleet operators, fleet managers and drivers. In this context, business owners are no longer just relying on technical vehicle innovations.

The qualified advanced training of drivers is now also a focal point for cost reduction. Employees who have perfect command of their vehicles and receive intensive instructions regarding technical innovation which they learn how to optimally utilise make as much of a contribution to a positive result as employees who know how to avoid risks on the road based on a cautious and save driving style and thus increase safety, reduce consumption and lower costs for wear and tear. Driver absenteeism due to sickness can also be minimised through appropriate training measures.

With 35 years of expertise, MAN ProfiDrive® has made a significant contribution to the all-round support for business owners, fleet managers and drivers in over 67 countries worldwide. MAN ProfiDrive® has continuously improved and expanded in terms of its daily dealings with customers as well as the available training portfolio. These days, customer-specific training solutions in niche markets are just as much part of the MAN ProfiDrive® training range as professional driver training in accordance with the law governing the qualification of professional drivers.
