Vehicle Safety Survey – What do you and your drivers know

The Australasian Fleet Management Association (AfMA) and Department of Transport Victoria are working together to build two online short interactive courses to assist drivers in understanding vehicle safety.

The subject of the first course will be ANCAP and it will contain information about its rating system and the importance of test date stamping. The second will focus on in-vehicle safety technologies.

The purpose of this survey is to gather information to support the courses content development and your survey response is anonymous.
