Davis launches new driver risk assessment tool

Davis, developed by Licence Check, has launched Driver Risk Assessor which is designed to help fleet managers better manage occupational road risk.

The Driver Risk Assessor features an online profiling solution, which analyses attitude and behaviour, enabling ‘at risk’ drivers to be quickly identified.

Using leading psychometric assessment software, it features a series of online tests with multiple choice and interactive video assessments to better understand the driver’s psychology and to measure all road-risk areas.

The online assessment covers road knowledge, observation, hazard perception, distance following, reaction and safe driving policy knowledge, via a 20-30 minute web-based survey and analysis.  The risk score is logged against a driver profile which is further enhanced by incorporating Davis Licence Check results.

Richard Brown, managing director of Licence Check, said: “We have created this cost-effective online profiling solution, so that fleet managers can establish a safer driver network, protecting the safety of their employees and members of the public.

“Our new solution rapidly profiles the risk of drivers flagging them as high, medium or low risk.  This is highly valuable for fleet managers, as it identifies the drivers that need further support and training.

“Fleet managers have the opportunity to tailor the support and training provided for their ‘at risk’ drivers, rather than adopting a one-size-fits-all approach.”

The Davis team recently supported British Gypsum’s Driver of the Year competition. The Driver Risk Assessor took a lead role in determining the results of the competition, as scores from live assessments carried out on the day were taken into consideration.
