Licence Checking

How well do you know your drivers? When managing a business fleet of cars and vans it’s important to carry out driver licence checks to remain compliant with HSE guidelines. In the event of an accident, you may need to produce evidence that all of your drivers have the necessary licence to drive on business.

This of course means checking the licences on a regular basis and in terms of best practice, checking them directly with the DVLA. In addition to company car drivers, any employee driving for business purposes, even when using their own vehicle will need ongoing checks.
