Organisations must ensure all at-work drivers have a valid licence and are entitled to drive their category of vehicle. Failure to check this could put your company at risk and breaking HSE compliance law. Our road safety expert Andy Wheeler explains how a dedicated licence checking service can help fleet managers monitor their entire driving community.
100% accurate licence check and validation
Our driving licence check and validation service is performed through direct, secure links with the DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency) or the DVANI (Driver & Vehicle Agency Northern Ireland). All driving licence validation checks are 100% accurate and ensures your organisation meets Health and Safety “Duty of Care” compliance requirements.
Validate licences and identify high risk drivers instantly
Our easy to use web-based solution seamlessly validates the information within our online Driver Risk Management platform, Continuum. The system routinely checks employee driving licences on an agreed electronic frequency basis (typically determined by the number of points on the driver’s licence record).
The driving licence check data is fed into each driver’s risk profile within our Continuum platform – giving a driver 'risk score'.
Reporting reduces management time
The Continuum platform allows you to manage your drivers by exception. You can identify drivers which represent the highest and lowest risk. High risk drivers who accumulate penalty points are instantly flagged to your attention before they become a serious threat to your business.
The platform generates alerts and reduces your administration burden.
Who should use this service?
All organisations employing staff who drive on company business, whether driving a company vehicle or grey fleet (the employee’s private vehicle).
