Driver Assessments

This service provides you with an in-cab assessment of your HGV or van driver’s driving practices and includes a written report. We can assess up to 4 drivers in a day for you.

HSE’s Workplace Transport Safety guidance states that “Your procedures should ensure that workers are capable of operating the vehicles and attachments they use at work, in all of the environments in which they are used”and “experienced people should be monitored to make sure they are working in accordance with both the training they have received and any safe systems of work”

The service allows you to comply with that guidance whilst gaining valuable insight into your drivers’ strength and weaknesses. It can also help you identify issues that are undermining safety and efficiency in your business.

The assessment can be used for recruitment, regular monitoring or post-incident and covers the following:

  • Knowledge of the highway code
  • Drivers attitude
  • Vehicle checks
  • Coupling and uncoupling
  • Gear selection and use
  • Hazard perception
  • Adherence to road procedures
  • Mechanical sympathy
  • Fuel efficiency
  • Defensive driving
  • Safe driving
  • Speed selection

An assessment day on your premises is £937+VAT plus instructor travel and subsistence (that’s just £235 if you assess 4 drivers).

Each assessment lasts for 45-60 minutes over a pre-selected route that covers a variety of conditions and environments.
