Ride-along assessments are a great way to observe and evaluate employee driving skills and behaviours. With the right tools and a little practice, one of your employees who has solid driving competencies can carry out timely and cost-effective in-house evaluations.
To get started, download and review the Driver Assessment Guide and either the fillable or printable version of the Driver Assessment Form. The form and guide were developed in cooperation with the JIBC Driver Education Centre. The Guide identifies each of the scoring criteria on the Form, and explains the driving actions and behaviours assessors should expect to see during ride-along assessments.
