Selection Driver Risk Index™

The Selection Driver Risk Index™ is a psychometric assessment that provides you with a robust and validated system for the recruitment and selection of safe and responsible drivers. It enables you to assess personality and emotional reactions to the demands of driving for work. Some drivers may be motivated to save time by speeding to meet scheduled deadlines and take risks due to time pressures. The selection factors detect the psychological competences drivers need to cope well with the demands of driving for work. The factors assessed include:

Situational Risk Factors

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

Behavioural & Coping Risk Factors

Aggression • Thrill Seeking • Fatigue Proneness • Hazard Monitoring •  Impression Management • Confrontive Coping •  Task Focus Coping •  Emotional Coping •  Reappraisal Coping •  Avoidance Coping

“By initially assessing 400 of our drivers and through subsequent training modules, we aim to decrease their risk of being involved in a road traffic incident by increasing their awareness of the risks associated with driving. DriverMetrics® provides the tools to do this with an intuitive online interface and a comprehensive reporting suite.”
