The responsibility of ensuring that a driver is entitled and safe to drive on behalf of their employer lies squarely with the employer. However, in order to check a driving licence with the DVLA, the holder must give their approval. With Licence Link’s electronic declaration feature, approval can be obtained with very little administration and time.
Imagine having a thousand employed drivers. Getting approval from all drivers for driving licence checking would then seem a hugely daunting task. Where do you begin? Is there enough time in the day to get to grips with this additional duty? But what would you say if you were told that it could be accomplished in less than a month with little impact on normal day to day administrative duties?
