Driver Assessments Leeds

Driver assessment training does not just focus on driving skills, but also on driver’s attitudes, knowledge and understanding of how they can manage driving risks. It also aims to ensure that drivers are aware of vulnerable road users, especially pedestrians, pedal cyclists and motorcyclists.

Why Book a Driver Assessment

You may wish to take an assessment if you feel that you fit any of the following categories:

  • Previously held a driving licence for a truck in another country.

  • Extremely nervous about driving a truck or unsure if you are capable.

  • Believe you are very capable already and need a shorter course than average which will save you money.

  • Not sure what driver training school to use and want to ‘check them out’ first before buying training.

  • Not sure if you will enjoy driving a truck and want to try driving one first.
