Program Description

Ontario’s Ministry of Transportation highly recommends the development of a fleet safety program to address matters relating to the safe operation of commercial motor vehicles. In-Cab Evaluations are useful for determining the skill and safety performance of professional drivers. All areas of driving a commercial vehicle are evaluated, including pre-trip inspection and driving and backing-up skills.

Professional driver evaluators need to assess on-road safety performance and ensure employees have the correct observation and driving skills for their prospective roles. They also need to be able to gauge their employee’s willingness to improve defensive driving habits and accept recommendations.

This comprehensive two-day workshop was created to help professional driver trainers build their skills to conduct effective In-Cab Evaluations.

In a classroom environment, participants will be presented with theory, in-class assignments, and in-group activities that allow opportunities to discuss and build on industry best practices in professional driver evaluations and assessment.



Please note that this is an IN-CLASS program and is NOT conducted in a vehicle on the road.


Program Content

After completing this two-day program, participants will be able to:

  • Identify industry performance standards for communication and assessment.
  • Describe key areas of observation and assessment.
  • Accurately document and report on performance.
  • Provide relevant and constructive feedback.
  • Design acceptable road test routes.
  • Identify what to observe during a driver evaluation.

Who Should Attend?

Fleet safety professionals who would like to improve their skills with regards to developing driver evaluation routes, setting evaluation standards, conducting effective driver evaluations, and delivering constructive feedback following the driver evaluation.



Knowledge of defensive driving concepts and adult learning principles would be an asset.


Learning Evaluation

A certificate of completion for this program will be issued to participants who are present for the entire program, successfully complete activities and assignments, and achieve 80% on a final multiple-choice knowledge evaluation.

For participants with language, literacy, or special accommodation needs, alternative evaluation methods to the written test may be used to verify that key concepts have been understood. Please discuss your needs with an IHSA Customer Service Representative when registering for the course and confirm your arrangements with the instructor before the beginning of class.


Participant Course Evaluation

At the end of the training, participants will have the opportunity to evaluate and provide comments about the training they received.
