Microlise Driver of the Year 2023 Shortlist Announced


Microlise Group, a leading global provider of telematics and fleet management solutions, has officially announced the shortlisted drivers for its annual Driver of the Year awards.

The Microlise Driver of the Year Awards highlight the most talented logistics drivers working in the UK transport industry today, acknowledging the vital work they do to make our roads a better – and safer – place to be. With some categories based solely on telematics data and others being nomination-based, the awards are the perfect way to reward outstanding performance and industry excellence.

Developed in cooperation with The University of Nottingham, this year’s awards fall into two groups:

1. Data-led Awards – based on Microlise Group’s own telematics data, the company works closely with a team from the University’s Advanced Data Analytics Centre to deliver impartial analysis.

2. Awards by Nomination – voted for by industry peers and judged by an expert panel of road transport professionals.

Speaking on the awards, Jemma James, Managing Director of TruTac (part of the Microlise Group) and representative on this year’s judging panel, said:

“The awards celebrate our true road ambassadors and champion the vital role that they play. Each driver’s professionalism, passion and commitment make them all heroes and they are a shining example of everything we should be proud of within logistics.” 

Fellow judge and Deputy Traffic Commissioner, Miles Dorrington, added:

“The quality drivers that I saw shortlisted for the Driver of The Year awards was extremely high, and reminded me that there are far more compliant, well-rounded drivers who are prepared to go the extra mile every day than there are non-compliant drivers.

“The tools and technology now available to measure drivers’ competence and compliance shine a bright light on the many great drivers – young and old – who act as ambassadors for the industry.” 

Winners in each category will be announced during a black-tie VIP dinner ceremony on Tuesday 16th May, and the Group’s overall ‘Driver of the Year’ – whittled down from over 230,000 drivers across the UK – will be crowned the following day at the Microlise Transport Conference.
