About fleet driver training insurance

Liability

Fleet driver licence checking services

Licence checking services can be carried out for any fleet. Checks against the DVSA’s database ensure you don’t employ disqualified or unsuitable drivers. This also enables you to comply with business legislation and ‘duty of care’ obligations, which can help to reduce your corporate risk and save a sizeable amount on your insurance premiums.

Yes. It is important that you are able to see just how up-to-date your drivers’ knowledge and skills are, and that they have the right attitude in place, so that if they are inadequate, you can determine what next to do.

Training can have an immediate effect but needs managing and reinforcing on a daily basis if drivers aren’t to slip back into old habits or beliefs. Also, drivers can tend to come and go so it's always important that you search out your weakest links, whether they are long-serving or new recruits.
