School Bus Driver Safety and Risk Index™

The Missing Piece of Your Hiring Process

A driver assessment instrument called The School Bus Driver Safety and Risk Index™ is unlike anything you have ever seen, it cannot be gamed and it is going to change safety in the student transportation industry!
Unlike assessments you may have given in the past, this is NOT a personality-based assessment NOR is it an IQ test. This assessment is a unique, values-based assessment, created from research nominated for a Nobel Prize. It has been specifically tailored to our industry in order to measure an individual’s capacity to demonstrate sound judgment and make good decisions behind the wheel of a school bus.
