This course provides candidates with the necessary skills to assess and report on the quality of any goods vehicle driver. Please note: Whilst an LGV Assessor course prepares candidates to carry out assessments, it does not prepare them to carry out remedial training. If this is required by your business the LGV Instructor course would be the most appropriate course for you as this covers assessing and teaching.

By the end of the course candidates will:

• Be able to recall and discuss the duties and responsibilities of an LGV Assessor
• Be able to conduct driver assessments
• Be able to produce factual, informative reports

The LGV Assessor course concludes with an objective examination carried out by an RTITB examiner. All elements of the examination must be passed in order to successfully qualify as an RTITB assessor. Achieving an RTITB assessor qualification is something to be truly proud of. Successful candidates are eligible to register on the RTITB Register of Professional Instructors & Assessors.
