Hey guys,
I am beginning to see what you mean.
When my driver is driving an esteem, the car hardly goes above 50kmph and on the same road in a palio its 70 - 80 kmph.
Damn, but i think even taxi drivers ought to be taught to drive defensively.
Private drivers are better then them any day any time.
Oh and revtech, see the superbikes section for the 911S in delhi.

these drivers specially when they are alone in the car think they have got the fastest car and that the entire road is theirs. actually this is the case with most of the uneducated drivers and this is the worst thing and i feel in india this will remain for ever.

they drive at speeds that they like. jump signals at intersections go without stopping or even slowing down and expect others to stop and let them go. its just very frustrating but reality is that nothing can be done about it. Thats life in india

But i remember her daughter saying something about driving in some areticle.
Also i think it should be 2 months and not 2 years.
Oh and i am very lucky.
Even when i used to be late for school, my driver used to stop at all red lights at 7.30 am.

I received this interesting email a short while ago. If it helps anyone:

Quote:
Dear Sir

CHAUFFERS TRAINING AND PLACEMENT

Hubert Ebner (India) Pvt. Ltd. Is an Indo – Austrian joint venture and a pioneer in introducing driver training systems in India. From a very modest start in 1996 we have now trained more than 50000 drivers pan –India. Our training is not just limited to cars; we even conduct trainings for heavy vehicles, cranes, fork lifts, multi-axle vehicles, two wheelers and three wheelers.

We have imparted training and are still doing so to a host of leading corporates in the country like Amex, HCL, Honda Seil cars , Lease plan, Orix, Monsanto, Seminis, Castrol, Shell group, Mann Travels and Cholamandalam MS Risk services Ltd.to name a few.

Realizing that there is a dearth of well trained chauffeurs in our country, we have now decided to start HE – Driversolutions Pvt. Ltd. a school wherein we will impart rigorous and exhaustive training to the selected drivers to enhance both their defensive and safe driving abilities and their soft skills for their interaction with the passengers.

The training imparted will include vehicle maintenance, hazard perception, Stress and fatigue management , driving in difficult and dangerous situation , general first aid and the dangers of drinking and driving .

At present we will be operating only in Delhi and NCR Region and by the end of 2009 we will have this facility in all metros .

We will be obliged if you could let us know you have any requirements on this front from your side .

We would be obliged if you would give us the name and contact numbers of your counter part in Delhi and NCR or forward this mail to them.

Even after their placement the training will continue - each driver will have to report once in 30 days for further training which will depend much on the feedback that we get from our customers.

You can contact us for your requirements at – shikha.datta@he-india.com or call us at 011 – 26842737 / 32961359 / 9899245123

We look forward to hearing from you at the earliest .

Thanking You,

SHIKHA DATTA

Co-coordinator - Project

I wonder if there is a demand for well trained chauffeurs in India and if the people that hire drivers will be willing to pay the difference (I wold assume the difference between a well trained driver and a regualr joe would be atleast 30%).

I would definitely not mind sending my driver there. He is pretty good, but could use polish to make him a chauffer .

Do we know what the cost is like?

At an average salary of 6 grand, that's an 1,800 premium. I'd be willing to pay that for a driver who is better on the road, knows how to care for the car and has a superior communication level. However, I got the impression from her email that the employer would foot the bill for their existing driver.
