The Licence Bureau has been appointed by Alliance Flooring to licence check the drivers of its 52-strong fleet.
Alliance Flooring’s transport manager Rob Coley said: “It is vital for us that we are 100% certain our drivers hold the correct categories of licence for the vehicles they are driving and that we know if the licence holder has any penalty points which could affect their eligibility to drive.
“HGV drivers spend their working day on the road and as employers we have a duty of care both to our workforce and other road users that our drivers are qualified and their licence categories have not expired. We also need to be aware of any penalty points as some penalty codes are not acceptable to our insurers.
“Partnering with the Licence Bureau means we have confidence the right checks have been made. We undertake two checks a year and any new drivers are automatically checked as are drivers who accrue additional penalty points while under their employment.”
