Professional operators and drivers can not be effectively assessed using only cognitive ability and personality tests – there is more to the job than that. VEEDRE offers validated psychomotor tests and test batteries to assess fitness to operate vehicles and machinery through full range assessment.
Psychomotor testing identifies the capacity to use cognitive/intellectual functions in order to perform fine and gross motor movements. Psychomotor capability is demonstrated by physical skills such as movement, multi-limb and hand-eye co-ordination, reaction, manipulation, dexterity, and speed. Behavioural examples include driving a vehicle, operating heavy and light machinery such as dozers or flying an aeroplane.
The VTS offers validated psychomotor tests and test batteries to assess fitness to operate machines by assessing the following safety critical and high performance abilities:
• Reaction time and speed
• Control movement abilities
• Fine motor movement and dexterity
• Multi-limb co-ordination
• Concentration, attention, and vigilance
• Time and motion anticipation
• Visual and auditory sensory and perceptual abilities
• Psychomotor stress tolerance capacity
