Risk of liability

You're worried you could be held liable if one of your drivers is involved in an accident.

Missing or false data

You think you've done enough to check your employees' driving licenses, but how do you know they're telling the truth?

Bad past experience

You've been stung in the past when you haven't checked the background of one of your drivers - and you don't want it to happen again.

Employers have a duty of care to ensure employees who are required to drive on behalf of the company are fully licensed and have the correct entitlements.

Make the right decision.

It's essential you fully understand the people you employ, especially if they drive as part of their work. Have confidence that your drivers are appropriately insured and licensed with online, real-time DVLA license checks. There's no excuse. Don't risk liability.

What are driving license checks?

Driving license checks enable you to quickly and efficiently validate a driving license number, before checking the information with the DVLA database. You can understand whether your drivers have valid driving licenses, and whether they have any offences, penalty points or if they are disqualified. You'll be alerted instantly in the case of an unlicensed driver, so you can take the necessary action. Driving license checks can enable you to efficiently manage and obtain not only driving license information, but also MOT, tax and insurance checks.

Check the driving history of new employees before they start, and also carry out regular checks and monitoring of existing employees to identify any changes in their driving status.

DVLA license checks give you peace of mind that your drivers are legally entitled to be on the road, so they're not putting anyone at risk. Prevent an incident before it strikes, and protect your reputation.

Why you should do driving license checks

Reduce risk

People make mistakes - we're all human. Online driving license verification prevents the errors associated with manual checking. Driving license checks reduce the risk of misinterpreted information, fraud and dishonesty.

React quickly

Our alert service will give you an instant warning if a driver shouldn't be on the road, so you can make fast and efficient decisions to protect your business.

Reduce your costs

Hiring people is an expensive process, so you don't want to have to do it again once you realise the driver you employed first is illegal. Hire the right person, the first time with driving license checks. Plus, electronic checks cost less per driver than manual checks - saving you money with each check you make.

Employ people quicker

We can help you employ the right people, quickly, ensuring they've gone through all the necessary checks.

Increase efficiency

Manage multiple drivers all at once by using filters to refine your search and view similar drivers in a group. Make the right decisions, quickly.


You don't want to be held liable when one of your drivers is involved in an incident. The Road Traffic Act and Health and Safety Executive (HSE) require employers to verify driving licences and continuously monitor any changes. You can demonstrate your duty of care through an online audit trail.

Protect your business

They say all publicity is good publicity - but is that really the case when you've been held liable for an incident? Understand any drivers that could potentially be putting your business at risk and prevent any damage to your brand reputation and your customer relationships.

Don't take our word for it, hear from our customers...

As a leading provider of bus and coach services across the UK and, through our megabus.com operation, our growing network of services to and within Europe, our team consists of many thousands of staff. As such, we have a number of processes to ensure that our driving team are professional, safe, and customer focused. As part of this, it is essential that all our drivers hold the correct qualifications and licences, and undergo comprehensive, thorough initial and ongoing training. To ensure an extra layer of checks, Stagecoach UK Bus contracted GBG to carry out electronic driving licence checks on all licence holders, as we recognise that paper checks are not foolproof, and counterpart licences have been abolished. The results can give our passengers reassurance that all our drivers are full equipped to drive the vehicles they are travelling on.


I cannot sing their praises highly enough. GBG provides an excellent service and an easy to use system. It saves us so much time and the hassle of chasing drivers for their licence.
