The best way to evaluate driving skills and behaviours is by direct observation. Some organizations choose to have an experienced, third party (e.g., a driver training provider) evaluate employees who drive for work purposes. However, with the right tools and a little practice, employers can carry out basic evaluations to identify driving strengths as well as opportunities for improvement.
If you have an on-staff trainer, a supervisor or an experienced driver that demonstrates the driving competencies your company requires, ask them to download and review the Driver Assessment Guide and either the fillable or printable version of the Driver Assessment form.
