In-House Assessor

The In-House Assessor’s Course is specifically aimed at organisations that assess their drivers using their own employees who have experience, but not any formal assessing qualifications. 

The aim of the course is to give delegates the additional skills and knowledge to assess and coach other drivers successfully, whilst giving them the confidence to suggest improvements that will lower the risk exposure of the driver and improve their driving techniques. DriveWise auditors have 30 years’ combined knowledge and experience dealing with compliance, and our in-house experts have helped many organisations reduce their exposure to driving risk.

Course overview

This course is split into three days

Day One

Commences with a 3.5-hour theory session which aims to improve Highway Code knowledge and gain an understanding of the delegate’s attitude and approach to road safety.

Following the workshop, the afternoon of the first day will be a practical driving assessment, where the DriveWise coach will observe the delegate’s driving style and give training in any areas that might need improvement.

Day Two

Starts with the DriveWise coach driving in a style where various repetitive faults are evident. The delegate will be assessing the coach, identifying and analysing the faults where possible and, once the drive has finished, giving a structured debrief with training recommendations.

The coach will then give feedback on whether all faults were identified, the structure of the debrief and fault analysis and finally, what recommendations the delegate gave to lower the driver’s risk exposure.

Day Three

Continues with fault analysis, feedback and remedial recommendations through role play. The DriveWise coach will give ongoing advice to the delegate to build up their confidence and knowledge to allow them to assess their drivers competently when they return to their organisation.

Following the course, attendees will be given a certificate of attendance and have telephone support from our Driver Risk Management experts.


The course can be delivered for up to three delegates (depending on vehicle type) at your location or at various locations around the UK.
