DVLA – Driving License Checks

 

DVLA-250x200Under the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007, an organisation can be now found guilty of corporate manslaughter as a result of negligent hiring practices. This includes fatalities caused by an employee driving on company time.

 

To make sure your company meets the highest levels of compliance, Manacor International can complete DVLA and driving licence checks for all your staffing needs. We conduct checks directly via our bespoke online system which integrates with the DVLA. This provides the correct information at a short turnaround time of around 5 minutes.

 

A completed DVLA Check will validate a candidate’s driving licence, and will also include all impaired charges, speeding, penalty points and other driving offences on their record. By accessing the DVLA information database for a particular candidate, we can also check that they hold a not only a clean and valid driving licence, but also that they hold a specific licence appropriate for any roles that require them.

 

We can conduct DVLA checks on a case by case basis, with a pay as you go standard fee of £8. If you require multiple staff / candidate checks per month, please contact us now to discuss our cost-effective and integrated DBS disclosure and DVLA checking service.

 

As a responsible employer, we recommend our clients regularly renew driving licence checks to make sure employees have not picked up any convictions, disqualifications or penalty points that would make them unsuitable to carry out their role. As detailed in the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007, if you fail to do complete regular checks, and an employee is involved in an incident, your organisation could face significant financial, legal and reputational consequences.

 

We are able to schedule annual DBS disclosure and DVLA checks, for every company employee that requires them, to make sure you are compliant with all regulations where possible. If you require ongoing annual checks for your employees, please contact us now to discuss some of our discounted solutions.
