Driver behaviour can improve by conducting an assessment

ASSESSING drivers online not only provides a risk rating it also offers an immediate improvement to their behaviour, according to Graham Hurdle, managing director of E-Training World.

 

He says that simply by conducting an assessment causes drivers to think more about their own driving, raises awareness in their minds of many areas that pose a risk whilst driving and helps them learn – even during the assessment process.

Hurdle said: ‘Many people cynically feel that an assessment is simply a means to an end to provide further on road or online training, with some fleet managers bemoaning up to 30% of drivers coming out high risk in some instances.

 

‘However with our systems we’re seeing a more sensible figure of around 10% high risk, 70% medium risk and 20% low risk, and these figures are even lower for those who have benefited from the integrated training along the way.’
