Licence Bureau signs up own staff for driver eyecare
The company has already seen the benefits of driver eyecare as for the last 18 months, it given in excess of 10,000 Premium Club Vouchers to its clients as an added benefit. These entitle them to a £20 discount in any Specsavers store across the UK.
The company is now providing eyecare for its own employees, using Specsavers Corporate Eyecare’s eVoucher system.
The Driver Eyecare eVouchers provide all employees at Licence Bureau with a full eye examination. This checks not only that they have all the essential eyesight requirements for driving, like sight over distance, peripheral vision and the ability to refocus between objects, but also the overall health of the eye. If staff require glasses to drive, these will be provided within the cost of the voucher. If not, they will be able to choose a pair of non-prescription sunglasses.
Malcolm Maycock, managing director of Licence Bureau, said: “Licence Bureau is an authorised DVLA licence checking service, set up by ex-police officers and IT experts. We are keen to support the message of the importance of good driver eyesight, and we have found that regular eye examinations are the best way to ensure eyesight is adequate for driving. The eVouchers for Specsavers Corporate Eyecare have been very popular with our clients, they provide good value for money and so it made sense for us to set an example and implement the system ourselves.”
