about Keith Lane








Keith Lane has been involved with driver training and road safety for over 30 years.


He started in UK as a Department of Transport Approved Driving Instructor, (DoT ADI) teaching learner drivers in UK, then 20 years ago moved into the Corporate Fleet Training market, initially in UK, but then overseas.

He has taught in many countries around the world, and has conducted road traffic research in almost 50 countries on 5 continents.


Keith has amassed numerous qualifications too many to list here, both academic and practical. He has not only 3 driver training diplomas, is a certified driving test examiner, but also holds a B.Sc. degree in driver education, and is presently studying towards his PhD in road safety. He is known and respected by his colleagues worldwide.


Keith has taught Defensive Driving to countless corporate customers, and the number of drivers successfully trained himself and by his teams of instructors in various modes of defensive driving (safe driving) runs into the tens of thousands.


In the process of this Keith has researched, written, & delivered his own range of driver training courses, which are externally certified by the International Association for Driver Education, IVV.  These defensive driving courses are specifically designed to match the driving environmental problems in each country, and are tailored for all vehicle types for each driving environment, e.g. city driving, desert driving, etc.


After conducting significant research, Keith has devised several training strategies that are incorporated into his courses -
