The qualification is designed to prove that an individual has the skills and knowledge to conduct and report on driver assessments, both for potential new staff and existing drivers.
Individuals first sit a theory test which includes assessment techniques, driving legislation, Highway Code, eco-safe driving and other topics. Practical driving skills are then evaluated for one hour, while a role-play scenario tests assessment ability.
If successful, candidates will be on the NRI LGV assessor register for five years with access to free technical advice and exclusive professional development opportunities. They will be issued with NRI LGV assessor card, and their name will appear on the NRI website.
Launched in 2017, the NRI is operated on a not-for-profit basis by RTITB, and is supported by the Freight Transport Association and Road Haulage Association.
