In-Vehicle Driver Evaluation

In-Vehicle Driver Evaluation (IVDE) puts your drivers’ knowledge and skills to work on the road. IVDE is a hands-on, mentor-supported experience that places critical thinking and driving strategy firmly behind the wheel.

In this course, your drivers practice an entire spectrum of techniques in a variety of real-world scenarios. Designed with coaching and feedback in mind, our in-depth driver evaluation can be tailored to meet the specific learning needs of your advanced drivers.


IVDE Road Tests Performance and Safety

Knowledge and Skill Set

What types of drivers benefit from IDVE?

Correct, well-practiced techniques and a deep-rooted commitment to safety make it possible for drivers to avoid any number of potential disasters. The concepts taught and performed in IVDE are relevant to all drivers, regardless of tenure, vehicle type, service performed, or geographic region.

The New Power Couple: IVDE and SDDC

IAPD’s Strategic Defensive Driving Course (SDDC) is a recommended pre-requisite to IVDE. SDDC focuses on both the skills and attitudes paramount to driving safety. IVDE extends that knowledge into a real-world practicum for learning that lasts.
