Do your drivers put your business at unnecessary risk?

One of your key obligations as a Fleet Manager is ensuring your drivers are fit to drive.

This includes fleet drivers, but also anyone who uses a vehicle during working hours. Including company car scheme drivers, your grey fleet and pool car drivers.

An effective driver licence checking policy and supporting software reduces risk to your business by confirming your drivers are legally entitled to drive and removes the administrative burden of checking every single licence manually.

Key benefits of regular driver licence checks

  • Maintain fleet compliance and safety
  • Take logistical pressures off the company
  • Proactive risk management
  • Confidence your drivers are appropriately licenced and insured
  • Avoidance of potential fines
  • Reduce misinterpreted information, fraud and dishonesty

Why do driving licence checks?

Businesses have a legal obligation to ensure the safety of their drivers and other road users. As well as verifying their vehicles are roadworthy, taxed and insured, they must prove that there is a rigorous checking process in place for their grey fleet.

Without regular driving licence checks, you could be putting your business at unnecessary risk. Just by developing a robust and well-managed driver licence check policy, you can prevent this risk and proactively manage any issues that arise.

The licence check provides comprehensive and up-to-date data on your drivers, taken directly from DVLA data.

A driving licence check will tell you:

  • If the driver has passed a test
  • If the driver is currently banned
  • If the driver is entitled to operate a specific category of vehicle
  • If the driver has any undisclosed points or endorsements
  • If the driver’s recorded address matches
