Either packaged together or purchased and used separately the below services are the best way to effectively assess and improve a drivers driving skills and habits.
Using both online and on road tools YD can assess your drivers and provide detailed feedback on who is at the highest risk of crash and who in your fleet should recieve training first to avoid any problems later, and save you money!
Hiring a driver can be stressful when you can't assess their actual driving skills and habits. We use a specifically designed evaluation to measure a drivers driving skills on the road as well as their defensive driving habits, allowing you to better understand just who you are hiring.

Driver Assessment In-vehicle
Under our Collisionfree! Brand of programs we work with Occupational Therapists and Clinics to assist with in-vehicle driver assessments. We provide the vehicle and the instructor to do the driving evaluation portion and keep everyone safe while the OT assesses other aspects related to driving. Our instructors have been trained specifically for this type of lesson.
We have some instructional vehicles equipped with assistive devices such as hand controls, left foot gas pedal, cross-over signals and spinner knobs. We can provide assessments using these devices with OTs, help customers get ready for assessments and teach you how to use these devices. Ask us how we can help.
