Getting there safely together. With the Omniplus safety training course of EvoBus Daimler shows school pupils how to make an active contribution to road safety when traveling by school bus: How should I behave when getting off, or at the bus stop? Daimler informs bus drivers of their rights and obligations in traffic and refresh their theoretical knowledge of braking distances. A special feature is that then train pupils and bus drivers together are trained – with information about the hazards of the blind spot, and a practical demonstration of stopping distances. The aim is to develop mutual understanding in a dialogue between bus drivers and students.
Furthermore OMNIplus offers tailor-made trainings for bus operations. With the own busses dodging and braking in different seating positions as well as manoeuvring in reverse are practiced. With almost 170 participant the biggest individual training so far took place in June 2017.

Safe driving requires practice. Despite the numerous driver assistance and safety systems available, a vehicle does not drive itself. Technology supports drivers and reduces stress to an increasing extent, but it must remain controllable. Heavy traffi c and complex situations demand responsible, safe action on the part of all road users. Our continuing education courses for drivers of cars and commercial vehicles make a major contribution to road safety.
With more than 65,000 participants from 50 countries, Mercedes-Benz Driver Training has developed to become the largest facility of its kind for truck drivers. 14,000 bus drivers have also completed our safety training courses since 1993. Some 5,000 young car drivers participated in the Mercedes-Benz Cup 2011 China’s Best Driver Contest held in several Chinese cities. This fi rst safety training course from a car manufacturer ever to be staged in China included awards for safe and considerate driving.
