Ride-Along Assessment

Your drivers/operators represent you and your company when they are on the road. Are you concerned about their driving skills and habits?

What is Driver Evaluation?

Driver Evaluation assesses an individual’s ability to operate a vehicle safely and determines strengths/limitations in the physical, visual, cognitive, and perceptual domains. The action results in specific recommendations for adaptive devices, vehicle type, vehicle modifications, and a driver-training program.

On The Road Driver Evaluation

Format

An evaluation route will be developed consisting of all available driving environments that the driver might encounter, including: rural, residential, suburban, urban and highway. The route will be divided into evaluation and recording zones.

Test sequences will be developed for each environment incorporating two to four driving tasks within each sequence. Each sequence will present the driver with a traffic problem, which requires judgment and a decision to resolve.

An overall driver assessment evaluation report will be produced outlining if the driver is at a low, medium or high risk of an accident.
