Workplace Assessments

TK’s Driving School wants to help make sure you are safe behind the wheel. If you have taken a break from driving and need a refresher course, are looking to upgrade your skills to include driving on your resume, or are wanting to return to the road after an illness or injury, we can help.

We work hand-in-hand with local employers, doctors, and Occupational Therapists to make sure that when you’re ready to resume driving, you can do so in a safe environment with the utmost confidence in your abilities.

Our refresher course makes sure that you have the most up-to-date knowledge of current driving standards. One of our main goals as a company is to ensure that our students get to enjoy many years of great driving - safely. 

Our workplace, medical, and Occupational Therapist-assisted assessments include off-road and on-road testing. We look for reaction times, how well you plan how to get your vehicle from Point A to Point B, how well you execute on that plan, as well as current knowledge of signs and Queensland road rules. We also watch for how your strategic thinking and decision-making are impacted. In the case of medical or occupational therapist assessments, we confer with your provider to ensure that we agree on whether continuing to drive is the best course of action, if modifications to your vehicle are needed – and how best to move forward in either case.

Our assessments include the following:

  • Road rules refresher
  • Road craft assessment
  • Observation of vehicle skill and driving behaviours
  • Examination of how you apply road rules in traffic
  • Review of your situational awareness
  • Hazards review and how to handle them (pedestrians, other vehicles, stationary objects, driving in heavy traffic)
  • Unbiased assessment of your overall ability to handle a vehicle in real-world conditions
  • Coaching on how to improve
  • Recommendations on vehicle modifications, if any
  • Review of the three key elements to a safe driving experience - the driver, the vehicle and the destination
  • Made-to-order training for employee needs

 

TK’s trainers are ready to help you make the right decision for your needs. We will work with you, or your employees, providing tailored coaching so that you feel comfortable behind the wheel. Our number one priority is ensuring that our students enjoy the road – while driving safely.
