Course Name:

Commercial Driver Assessment

Course Type:

Driver Assessment

Course Description:

This assessment is designed for fleet owners and organisations who wish to fulfil their duty of care and assess their employees’ driving skills.

A report is prepared with the results from an assessment which includes theory and practical testing on the fundamentals of safe driving, awareness whilst driving and general on-road skills. This will provide an indication of the employee’s level of driving standard. It will also highlight areas that require further improvement and may require additional training or review.

We can help you with:

  • One-off bulk assessment of your employees
  • Ad hoc assessment whenever you take on a new employee
  • Ad hoc assessment for an employee that has had an accident

Customised Driving Assessments

We offer customised assessments depending on the type of vehicle and the task being undertaken. These include assessments for drivers of:

  • Typical sedans
  • 4WD vehicles
  • Delivery vans.
  • Passenger transport vehicles (such as mini-buses and other vehicles that transport passengers, e.g., nursing homes and charitable organisations).

Note: In addition to the usual topics, transport vehicle driver assessments will also cover: passenger comfort, avoiding distractions from passengers and other passenger-related knowledge and skills.

The assessment will cover:

  • Most current road rules
  • General driving ability
  • Creation of risk avoidance space
  • Concentration and avoidance of distractions
  • Ability to plan ahead
  • Economical use of a vehicle

For delivery vans, special attention is paid to:

  • Pre-start checks
  • Vehicle capabilities
  • Attitude on the road
  • Fatigue
  • Awareness of blind spots
  • Loading to prevent movement, minimise risks and improve efficiency.

Two versions

  • Employee completes a road rules test

Assessment and Tutorial
