Dover Testing Systems

What is Dover Testing?

Dover has been providing psychomotor testing equipment since 1986 with installation worldwide.

Dover Systems of Randburg, South Africa, is the supplier of the Dover Test used in Mining, Manufacturing, Construction, Transport and allied industries.

The Dover Test developed by Dr Nick Christodoulou, registered and HPCSA approved test of psychomotor skills and competency.

The Dover Test has been an integral part of the recruitment and safety assessment of operators of machinery and equipment using:

  • Colour, sound and foot coordination
  • Performance under differing conditions
  • Recognition of environment changes/simulation
  • Concentration and Attention
  • Training and knowledge transfer abilities
  • Safety and productivity evaluation

The Dover Test is a standardised test that has been validated for accurate and reliable (repeatable) results.

The (Dover) “Test” is computer administered for absolute correctness of applications to each candidate thus ensuring fairness.

The Dover Test uses non-verbal instructions for initial teaching of the requirements, practice to ensure test understanding and thereafter test phase administration.

Results are immediately evaluated & a full evaluation report generated by an embedded report writing program.

This report is either screen based or printed out and available in Word (.pdf) and Excel format, therefore can either be printed out (hard copy) or emailed electronically to remote site.
