A key part of running a fleet of any type – car, motorcycle, van, truck, bus, coach and 4x4 – is making sure that your drivers drive legally with a valid driving licence*. This ensures that, in the event of a crash, the employee and employer are fully insured.
Many organisations undertake driving licence checking by hand and simply photocopy the documents for people who drive for work or professionally.
Our driver licence checking experience shows that 1 in 650 drivers are driving while disqualified and 1 in 300 with a revoked or expiring licence. This means that, unless your organisation validates the licence against the DVLA’s own database, you may be exposed to additional fleet risk and not compliant with your duty of care responsibilities.
AA DriveTech can validate or verify your drivers’ licences directly with the DVLA. This provides you with the assurance, and peace of mind, that your drivers’ licences are valid, which categories if entitlement are current and details of any endorsements. To make it easier, completion of the legally-required data protection mandates can be performed online or by hand and our system provides you with the management information you need.
