Evaluation of Drivers

Code B(08) - EC(14)

Evaluation of drivers to assess the level of competency and safe driving skill.

Employing new drivers is a difficult task for businesses. It is difficult to predict how newly employed drivers will drive your fleet vehicles. Some drivers might not have driven in a long time or did not obtain their drivers licence in a legitimate way. Some drivers also developed bad driving habits over time and receive complaints or cause frequent accidents. We supply an unbiased driving assessment.
The objective of our assessments is firstly, the correct handling of the vehicle in order to maximize the life of the vehicle, and secondly, to drive the vehicle in the most economical way possible. All assessments are based on the K53 driving system. After the driving assessment our facilitator will be able to identify shortcomings in driving skills and make a recommendation for remedial training.

Requirements

You need to be in possession of a valid driver licence.

Assessment of driving skills and identification of driver shortcomings.

Assessments are done on our vehicle or the vehicle the driver uses for work. We advise that the vehicle he operates for work as it is easier to identify his shortcomings or driving ability on that specific vehicle. All vehicles are not the same, so assessing his ability on one of our i10 vehicles might not identify the difficulty he has when driving a larger vehicle such as a Ford Ranger bakkie. Each vehicle has its own characteristics and difficulties to drive.

Why have drivers assessed?

Driver assessments are vital to ensure that your drivers do no miss use or damage your vehicles.
Delegates who have not driven a vehicle for an extended period of time might be out of shape.
Some drivers develop bad driving habits over time.
Veteran drivers might have deteriorated vision or the ability to operate a vehicle.
It is very difficult for the Human Resources department of a business to determine a new employee's driving skills.
Some drivers are promoted or given a new company vehicle which is difficult for them to operate.
The business might have a had complaints or reports of bad driving from a specific driver.

How the assessments are done

All assessments are based on the K53 driving system.
All manoeuvres such as reversing, ally-docking and parallel parking are tested.
The driver is assessed on the road to assess his interpretation of robot con trolled crossings, traffic circles, stop crossings, driving in traffic and response to other road users.
Manipulation of the vehicles controls such as use of brakes, clutch, indicators and gears.
Safe driving is assessed by changing lanes, overtaking and entering traffic.

All assessments are done on correctional bases. The instructor will inform the driver of the mistakes they have made during the assessment.

After the assessment

Once the practical driving assessment has been done by our instructor, a report will be compiled. This report will identify all the shortcomings based on the K53 driving system. The instructor will then add a recommendation in a the comments section on how to improve the drivers shortcomings should there be any.
