The truck driver exam is a
useful tool for many types of companies who need to assess the skills,
personality, and intelligence of drivers. We have cost-effective solutions
for companies of
any size. Our past clients include companies ranging
in size from a small
independently owned company testing one or two drivers a month to a large
fortune 500 company testing 30-50 drivers a month or more.
Below is a list of various
uses for our driver exam.
Trucking Companies Can...
Hire Quality New Drivers
Our exam helps trucking firms
differentiate between high and low quality driver applicants. The exam may also
be used to aid in selecting dispatchers, trainers and management personnel who
must have basic understanding of heavy trucking and varying levels of
Assure Uniform Hiring Across
Use of an objective instrument such as a
reliable and valid test can help a large trucking company with many offices
maintain consistent hiring practices from one branch to the next. For example, a
company might require all drivers to have Average or better scores on all
sections of the exam.
Identifying where a driver stands within a company can be an important and
useful tool in managing your human resources. For example, drivers with higher intelligence can be given more
responsibility and groomed for jobs such as instructor and safety
supervisor where as drivers with low factual knowledge
scores might need additional training in such areas as federal regulations, load-handling and
Insurance Companies Can...
Assess Risk of Trucking Companies
Insurance companies can identify trucking companies that use our exam as a
low-risk company to insure. Our tests help trucking companies hire only
safe and reliable drivers which reduces the number of accidents and workers comp
claims. Our exam has been endorsed by Great West Casualty
Company of South Sioux City, Nebraska since 1991.
Truck Driving Schools
Our exam can be used to select high-quality instructors,
who should have above average scores on as many of the 10 test sections as
Schools can screen applicants prior to admission and measure
their technical knowledge learned as a result of schooling.
A truck driving school which carefully screens for only the best qualified
students may have to attract more students to fill each class. However, such a
school will enhance its reputation with both aspiring students and hiring
trucking companies, for it will graduate better drivers. Employers will be more
pleased with the graduates they hire and new students can thus be more confident
of finding a job once graduating. Trucking companies who sponsor students to
training programs are especially interested in knowing if a student has the
traits necessary to succeed in their job once trained. For them especially it is
valuable to screen students with our exam before training.
Place Graduates with Companies
Schools can use our exam to determine what level and how demanding of a job a
graduate can manage at a trucking company. For example, companies needing drivers with
higher intelligence for hazardous materials hauling or long-haul flatbedding can
be sent only graduates with Average or higher Intelligence Total scores. Drivers
with modest scores could be recommended for less demanding jobs, such as hauling
gravel over the same route each day. If needed, we can arrange to give
companies and schools access to driver scores as documentation that certain
criteria has been met.
Protect Students and the Public
It is in the best interest of school
applicants who are not well suited for truck driving to be informed of this fact
ahead of time. Our exam can help protect those applicants from
wasting their time, spare them the financial burden of failure, and guard them
and the public against potentially fatal accidents.
