Recruitment of additional drivers

Retailers are continuing to work hard to feed and serve the nation in response to the impacts of the virus.

With the massive increase in challenges the delivery sector is facing at the moment, including the recruitment of additional drivers, one area that still requires managing is the need to ensure driver licence compliance.

Employers need to maintain compliance when employing additional drivers, so ensuring anyone the employer causes or permits to use a motor vehicle or trailer on the road has a valid licence for that category of vehicle.

If you are hiring a handful of additional drivers, the free DVLA view or share your driving licence information service at allows you to check and stay compliant.

If you are hiring a high volume of new drivers then it may be better to consider using an intermediary driver licence compliance provider such as Licence Bureau.
