ADLV calls on more licence checks for fleet drivers

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

 

The Association for Driving Licence Verification (ADLV) has called on fleet managers to make more regular checks on driving licence entitlement to make roads safer. 

By establishing industry standards based on driver risk profiles, the ADLV believes that fleets will be able to more quickly identify high-risk groups, such as those with mobile phone misuse and other offences.

Currently, most organisations, including those with vocational fleets, work on just an annual or bi-annual basis and the ADLV said this should include quarterly checks for vocational fleets as a norm and more frequent checks where driver risk profiles warrant it. 

The ADLV's deputy chair Richard Payne-Gill believes that a move to more regular checking will support both risk reduction and road safety. 

He said: "Previously annual or bi-annual checks were deemed to be sufficient. However, the latest checking systems, available through ADLV members, deliver more regular checks and are already being followed by some major fleets. In our view more frequent automated commercial checking varied according to driver risk profile, will establish it self as the best-practice for all professional fleet managers."
