The online profiling tool is expected to launch at the end of this month and includes a 30-minute questionnaire which looks at driving attitudes and behaviour. Details of the test were revealed at last week's East Anglia regional meeting of the Association of Car Fleet Operators (ACFO).
Members heard that eight driver qualities are measured including aggression, alertness, stress, dislike of driving, anticipation, attention, violation and error. RoSPA claims there is a lie detector built into the profiler, testing if fleet drivers are answering the questions honestly.
A RoSPA spokesman said: 'It tests whether employees are answering honestly, or whether they are just giving the answers the tester wants to see.'
A series of psychological questions have been added to the profiler to determine if fleets are telling the truth and drivers are only given one chance to complete the profile.
The scores for each section are then tallied and a report is produced indicating whether the employee is categorised as high, medium or low risk.
Fleet managers can then implement a driver training programme if needed. 'Driver training works. Statistics from insurance companies, Government departments, car manufacturers and fleet customers prove accident rates drop by at least 25% after initial training,' the spokesman added.
A 'performance analyser' is also available this summer from RoSPA, where fleets will be able to test driver's ability to spot road hazards.
Similar to a computer game, motorists have to pick out potential hazards from a variety of scenarios including driving on a motorway or on an urban road. Both the driver profiler and analyser will be available on a pay-per-use basis at a cost £25 per user.
