How Driving Evals Works

Online forms to evaluate students ... and instructors

  • 100% on-line. No paper forms. No scanning. No manual re-entering of data.
  • Students evaluate their instructor too. And the event and classroom.
  • Evaluations are stored in permanent student and instructor logbooks.
