You're worried you could be held liable if one of your drivers is involved in an accident.
You think you've done enough to check your employees' driving licenses, but how do you know they're telling the truth?
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.
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.
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.
Previously I just hoped our drivers were okay, now I am 100% sure that all of our drivers have a current and valid licence.
