Driving Licence Checks Essential

August 2, 2009

A recent case in North Wales confirms the fundamental importance of companies having a strict regime of checking the Driving Licences of all employees driving at work.

A 61-year-old Company Director drove away from the scene of a fatal accident leaving a young boy dying and later arranged to have his car repaired to avoid detection.

The driver was found to have never held a valid Driving Licence and therefore valid Insurance cover. He was sentenced to 22 months jail at Mold Crown Court for attempting to pervert the course of justice and causing death whilst driving without a licence or insurance even though there was no evidence that the accident had been caused by poor driving.

This tragic case is a poignant reminder that it is never safe for a Company to assume that Driving Licences or Insurance on privately owned cars are in order.

Companies have clear responsibilities under statue law and Health and Safety Guidelines.
