Driver Assessor Training

At Beyond Driving we take driver assessment seriously, and all of our assessors are also trained coaches who are able to give feedback and training advice during the sessions we run. We regularly train driving instructors, however, we are coming across more and more companies who wish to have internal driver assessors capable of providing a flexible service within their organisations.

Professional Driving Assessor Training Courses

We have been running training courses for driving assessors for several years, for companies with large fleets of cars, vans and 4x4s, as well as LGV and PCV fleets. We don’t run a two-day tick-box courses, but provide a professional and impressive solution to companies who require their assessors to be knowledgeable, systematic and respected by the drivers they work with.

We tailor the courses to the requirements of the client company, but the basic training course follows the pattern of an advanced driving course, with RoSPA accredited professional driving certification at the end. During this training, we focus on systematic and planned driving, while also giving the candidate an excellent knowledge of the driving legislation they and their employers will be subject to. Our advanced driving trainers are all long-standing Fleet Driver Trainers, with an excellent knowledge of roadcraft, the law, and professional driving best practice.

Where candidates already hold an advanced driving qualification (RoSPA, IAM, DIAmond), we are able to jump straight to the assessor training, which usually takes between 3 and 5 days, depending upon requirements.

Driver Risk Assessment Training – Specialist Modules

From here, we can add in additional certification, such as the Van Assessor, 4x4 and Off-road Driving Assessor course, or training specific to quad bikes and ATVs or winches. We also have trainers who are highly experienced working internationally, within the oil and chemical industries, military and security specialists, expedition and serious incident specialists.

Finally, we run a specific driver assessor course, and apply the training to the requirements of the candidates and client companies, giving them the skills to accurately assess any driver’s skill, knowledge and attitude, diplomatically and professionally. The assessors will also be able to report their findings in a manner which will be useful in improving safety, and efficiency to the company, reducing maintenance, fuel, insurance and liability costs.

Our driver assessor courses are designed to fulfil the requirements of UK H&S legislation as well as OGP 365 for oil and petroleum industry employees around the world.
