Driver Licence Checking - Do you know the risk?

Driver licence checking is now a crucial part of Fleet checks, failure to check someone’s driving licence properly could lead to prosecution if a company is found guilty of allowing an employee to drive without a valid licence.

As an employer, you are responsible for ensuring that your drivers have a valid licence, without excessive penalty points.  UK law requires a business to perform regular driving licence checks.

Checking employee’s driving licences annually is sufficient for drivers with a clean licence but you should check more frequently for those drivers who are higher risk, for example, those who have more than 6 points.  It is also important to be able to document the licence check process, which enables you to demonstrate compliance.
