Driver Profiler

Our original online risk assessment tool

Driver Profiler is an online psychometric risk assessment tool that measures attitude towards driving, providing excellent insights into the risk posed by drivers, allowing managers to compare individuals and make decisions on the provision of appropriate training.

This can also be used as an effective recruitment exercise ensuring drivers who are selected fit the required profile. The package, designed by two of the UK's leading universities, is exclusive to RoSPA.

Driver Profiler overview

The software aims to risk assess an individual's attitude to driving by measuring driver history along with eight human characteristics: aggression, alertness, stress, dislike of driving, anticipation, attention, violation and error.

A report is sent to each individual highlighting problem areas and giving tips and advice so drivers can see where and how to improve.

Managers have access to a report containing a risk rating for each driver, so they can see at a glance which drivers pose the highest risk and prioritise training for those individuals.

Duration: Licences are valid for 12 months and can be purchased for any number of drivers.

Manager Access - is enabled via a secure log in which will allow access to Company Reports, these offer an overview of all driver assessments. Managers can also access the detailed individual Driver Reports and view risk ratings.
