1. A driver evaluation system for evaluating progress of a driver'"'"'s skill level, the driver evaluation system comprising:

  • a display device;

    a driving-monitor system communicatively connected to the display device, the driving-monitor system including non-transitory computer readable media storing;

    (i) a first driving skill score, and (ii) computer readable instructions that, when executed by one or more processors of the driving-monitor system, cause the driving-monitor system to;

    activate a sensor disposed in the vehicle to detect movement, wherein the sensor generates movement-data representing the detected movement and wherein the sensor is selected from a group consisting of;

    a GPS unit or accelerometer to track movement of a vehicle; and

    a camera to track a pose or motion of a driver of the vehicle;

    generate a second driving skill score based on a comparison between;

    (i) an analysis of the movement-data and (ii) reference-data representing a threshold range of movement;

    generate a binary or ternary progress score for a driving session representing a state of progress of a driver'"'"'s skill based on a comparison between;

    (i) the first driving skill score, and (ii) the second driving skill score; and

    transmit data representing a first graphic indication of the first driving skill score, a second graphic indication of the second driving skill score, and a third graphic indication of the binary or ternary progress score, the third graphic indication selected based on the binary or ternary progress score to indicate a trend from the first driving skill score to the second driving skill score as reflected by the binary or ternary progress score;

    wherein when the display device receives the data representing the first, second, and third graphic indications, the display device presents the first graphic indication, the second graphic indication, and the third graphic indication to visually indicate the trend, represented by the progress score, from the first driving skill score to the second driving skill score.
