Driving Licence Checking ‘Reducing the Risks’

Driving Licence Verification Company & Grey Fleet Drivers

• Law • Road Traffic Act • Compliance • Health & Safety, Duty of Care • Robust Process • Policy & Procedures

Law - Road Traffic Act 1988 "It is an offence for a person to cause or permit another person to drive on a road, a motor vehicle of any class, if that other person is not the holder of a licence authorising them to drive a motor vehicle of that class." How sure are you that all your drivers hold the correct valid ‘Entitlements & Licence’ to drive on any type of company business?

Checking a driver’s licence – 3 Options 1. Physically inspect the licence • Counterpart • Photocard • Manually record the data ! Historical data – is this valid?

Changes 2015 DVLA Removal of the Paper Counterpart Licence

2. Alternative - Use a DVLA Service • Driver to call DVLA and leave authority, company to call back later • Call DVLA with driver present • Open a DVLA Account using a Consent Form

Options 1 & 2 • Time consuming & costly • Require systematic processing time • Subject to human error & misinterpretation • Potentially inaccurate • Repetitive process • Training required or Use Modern Technology

3. Use a DVLA Registered EDECS Organisation (Electronic Driver Entitlement Checking Service) • Electronic Access to DVLA Licence Records • Professional Service Provider

Why wouldn't you use DVLA Data Source if it’s available to you ?

Managing the Risk Policy & Procedures  top level commitment  company wide  systematic – check & recheck  evidential  training – skill, knowledge, experience  stand up to investigation

Scenario… • Driver presents licence to employer • Driver later convicted of an offence • Licence not returned to DVLA for updating • Employer not informed of the offence by driver • Driver involved in serious accident • Police investigation • Licence found to be revoked or disqualified • Potentially uninsured What are the consequences?

Driving Licence Revocation Procedure Drivers must return their licence to the DVLA for updating following a conviction within 28 days or the DVLA will automatically revoke the licence, rendering the driver without the ability to drive until they have returned the licence and it has been updated.
