ADLV calls on fleets for more regular licence checks

The association is urging vocational fleets to move to quarterly checks as a norm and to run more frequent checks where driver risk profiles warrant it.  Currently, most organisations, including those with vocational fleets, work on just an annual or bi-annual basis.

Deputy chair Richard Payne-Gill said he believes that a move to more regular checking will support both risk reduction and road safety.

He explained: “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.”
