Under its DrivActiv™ digital services brand, Driving Dynamics will now offer scientifically-proven online psychometric assessment tools developed at Cranfield University, a globally renowned academic institution, and based on 30 years of research into driver behavior. Included in this online suite of services are driver behavioral risk assessments and driver self assessments. International driver perceives his or her performance behind the wheel.
Assessments can be used by fleet operators as a standalone tool or as part of a comprehensive program where both assessments are assigned as a prerequisite to on-road coaching and used by the Driving Dynamics instructor to target interventions at specific driver behaviors. Upon completion of the half-day on-road session, the coach instructor debriefs with the learner(s) and completes a 50-question evaluation immediately available online to the driver and their company.
“This alliance underlines Driving Dynamics commitment to be the driver safety training provider of choice for fleet companies, fleet operators and strategic service partners by offering the breadth and scope of the highest quality services,” said Art Liggio, Driving Dynamics, president and CEO.
