Compliance made easy
You and your drivers will have access to a secure online portal, which manages the entire process, from initial submission of driver and vehicle information, through to provision of accurate driver risk ratings that will determine their on-road training requirements. The system also:
- Automatically notifies you of submissions outstanding
- Schedules periodic audits to ensure that data is kept up to date
- Flags expired documentation
- Contacts drivers when they are required to resubmit information for updates
How the process works:
The driver audit stage verifies:
- Which employees drive for work
- Whether they drive a company or grey fleet vehicle
- Whether they are aware of your policies and if they have read and understood them
- Drivers’ basic Highway Code knowledge, their general health and incident history
Drivers enter and submit their licence details, along with a declaration of consent for their information to be accessed. Licence data is then validated against DVLA records. Endorsements contribute to the driver’s final risk rating.
For grey fleet drivers, there is an additional step, which ascertains whether their vehicle has a valid MOT certificate and insurance. You and the driver will also be sent notifications when these documents expire.
Drivers are then sent an invitation to complete an online driver risk assessment, which includes a broad range of questions and exercises including an interactive hazard perception video, and establish each driver’s risk level according to their performance in the following categories:
- Driving history
As part of the training package, the driver will be able to take part in e-learning sessions, which educate them on key issues relevant to at-work driving including:
- Speed awareness and eco-driving
- Drugs and alcohol
- Driver fatigue and night driving
- Vehicle awareness
- Winter driving
- Route planning
Following the driver risk assessment process, on average 11% of fleet drivers are judged to be high-risk.
As a business, having identified these drivers, it is vital that you take action to mitigate the risk. We recommend referring the drivers for our on-road Driving for Work course.
The price of our fixed-fee package includes on-road training courses for 16% of your drivers. This allows you to offer on-road training to an additional 5% of your drivers in the event that they would benefit from it, at no extra cost.
