Risk Assessment Tool

This assessment will take you under five minutes to complete. We'll give you your results immediately and e-mail them to you so you have a record.

In this simple three-part assessment we can let you know some more about the risk you are facing. In the first part we look at how you use your vehicle in relation to your work, and in the second part we will calculate how many units of alcohol you drink in a week. These are the key factors we have observed with thousands of drivers since we started running DfT/DVSA courses in 1993.

Needless to say it can only be a very rough guide to your level of risk, please call for a full assessment.
