What is Suraksha

Suraksha, the word itself implies safety. It is a set of specialized defensive driving training courses for road users, who already hold a driving license. It intends to develop and inculcate the habit of safe and defensive driving skills amongst them. Content & language of courses & materials has been designed according to the special needs of all vehicle categories & target audience like executives, professional drivers, ladies, physically challenged persons etc. An essential part of all programmes is our highly acclaimed “Safe Driving” manual.

The courses consciously incorporate a very high level of visual content like photographs, films, graphics and animation for maximum impact. They are conducted with a high degree of interaction and participation of trainees and tackle all levels of literacy and understanding in all major Indian languages. Several modules of Suraksha are available from 1 day to 3 days, depending on how much time participants and organizations can spare and their interest in specific vehicle categories. Driving, assessment, demonstration drives, and feedback/counselling, are all optional parts of the Suraksha courses. Suraksha is designed for drivers who already hold licenses for Two-wheelers (motorcycles and scooters), LMVs, HTVs (goods & passenger), public transport and special transport vehicles like tankers, carriers of hazardous goods, emergency vehicles (ambulances, fire-fighting vehicles, police vehicles etc.) and industrial vehicles (forklifts, trucks for material handling, construction and earth-moving equipment etc.). Each module is custom designed to meet the needs of specific user groups and could even include clients H.S.S.E (Health Safety Security and Environment) policies. The sense of safe driving, in both professional drivers and self-driven car users have been very well instilled effectively though these training programs. Many of India’s leading companies, several diplomatic missions, Nodal bodies, and a variety of organizations ranging from NGOs to Government departments use Suraksha programs regularly to train their personnel in road safety and have reported a significant improvement in their safety records thereby curtailing a lot of fatalities. We also provide a “Safe-Card” on successful completion of our Two-day training program.
