LGV Driving Assessments
Driver Assessment Promoting fuel efficient and safe driving
This one hour HGV Driver Assessment is designed to benchmark fuel efficiency and identify poor driving behaviour that could lead to excessive vehicle wear and tear or might lead to an accident. The driver will complete a standard route under the observation of a qualified LGV instructor.
Benefits to employer and employee
Driver Assessments carried out show a fuel efficiency difference between the best and worst drivers of over 4 mpg. If your drivers could achieve just a 1 mpg improvement in fuel consumption this could equate to a financial saving of over £4,000 per driver, per year based on 85,000 miles annual mileage. Additional savings can be obtained through reduced vehicle maintenance costs.
The driver and their employer will receive a written assessment report containing observations on driving style together with any recommendations for corrective training.
The driver will be assessed against the following criteria:
- Fuel consumption
- Safe handling and defensive driving
- Minimising wear and tear
- Hazard perception
- Daily walk around checks
- Road sense and lane discipline
- Observing speed limits and traffic regulations
