LGV Assessor

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. This course also prepares candidates for the independent National Register of LGV Assessors (NRI) examination

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

This course is suitable for candidates who:

  • Have significant experience as professional LGV drivers
  • Have the confidence to objectively assess their work colleagues performance
  • Have good attention to detail
  • Have good written skills
