Course Name:

Verification of Competency Driving Assessment

Course Type:

Driver Assessment

Course Description:

Our Verification of Competency Assessment (VOC) is a one-on-one assessment that helps to ensure that your drivers are driving efficiently and safely, and that they are great ambassadors for your company. We will confirm that your drivers are up to date with the latest transport regulations and standards. They will be tested on their ability to drive one of the following types of trucks:
  • Light Rigid (LR)
  • Medium Rigid (MR)
  • Heavy Rigid (HR)
  • Multi Combination (MC)
  • Heavy Combination (HC)
  • Tow Truck (Towing and Tilt-tray)

Note: This is a non-accredited, professional development course

The Assessment Includes

  • Pre-Start Checklist
  • In-Cab Pre-Start
  • Practical Drive
  • Post-Operational Checklist

Special attention is given to:

  • Vehicle capabilities
  • Attitude on road
  • Fatigue
  • Blind spots
  • Mirrors
  • Gears
  • Brakes
  • Effective engine management
  • Load-safety and potential dangers of laden truck
  • Safe and defensive driving methods
  • Environmental issues

For Employers

The main reasons that employers require a VOC are:

  • Pre-employment checks
  • Contractual arrangements
  • Site requirements
  • Request from an insurance company
  • Workplace audit.

If you are an employer, you may arrange for us to customize our VOC assessment to suit your specific needs.


If you are a driver who is looking for a job, you might choose to pay for a VOC so that you can have confidence in your ability to pass a potential employer’s driving ability test. If you are a little rusty or need a little additional training, it is best to find that out before you apply for a job as a driver – you might not get a second chance with that employer. This is also an excellent addition to any resume and will help to impress potential employers.
