Driver Assessment

Promoting fuel efficient and safe driving

The course

This one hour HGV Driver Assessment is designed to benchmark fuel efficiency and identify poor driving behaviour that could lead to excessive vehicle wear and tear or might lead to an accident. The driver will complete a standard route in a telematics equiped vehicle under the observation of a qualified Mantra LGV instructor.


Benefits to employer and employee

Driver Assessments carried out at Mantra show a fuel efficiency difference between the best and worst drivers of over 4 mpg. If your drivers could achieve just a 1 mpg improvement in fuel consumption this could equate to a financial saving of over £4,000 per driver, per year based on 85,000 miles annual mileage. Additional savings can be obtained through reduced vehicle maintenance costs.



The driver and their employer will receive a written assessment report containing observations on driving style together with any recommendations for corrective training. It will include a telematics report showing the driver's fuel consumption and how they rate compared with the best and worst drivers who have undertaken the route.

  • Fuel consumption
  • Safe handling and defensive driving
