The Bus Driver Risk Index™

The Bus Driver Risk Index™ is an online driver risk assessment that identifies specific behaviours that increase the risk of driving a bus or coach. It takes less than 20 minutes to complete, with each driver receiving a report. The report summarises the results and provides tailored advice on how to improve driver safety.

Scores across several key risk factors are used to create an individual report for every driver.

Situational Risk Factors

• Age • Annual Mileage • Driving Hours • Driving Experience • Licence Status • Crash History

Behavioural & Coping Risk Factors

• Aggression • Hazard Monitoring • Thrill Seeking • Relaxed Driving • Fatigue • Driving Concerns • Emotional coping • Reappraisal coping • Avoidance coping • Risky coping • Confrontation

“We trained driver Instructors on how to interpret the Bus Driver Risk Index™ results and how to coach driver students more effectively. We sent the students’ risky behavioural profiles to school with them. There is a strong likelihood that the DriverMetrics® programme and process has made a significant difference in our new hire training."
