Driver compliance now top of the fleet agenda says Licence Bureau
Licence Bureau has experienced a 30% increase in licence checks in the first half of 2017 to 330,894 compared with 2016 making it the clear number one provider in the UK according to Access to Driver Data (ADD) figures.
This is a clear sign according to MD Malcolm Maycock that driver compliance is now top of the fleet agenda.
“We have seen a number of new fleets approach us as well as larger companies putting their licence checking out to tender over the first half of 2017,” explained Maycock.
“The entire industry licence check volumes are also up 17.2% according to the ADD which is further proof that driver compliance is now being taken seriously,” he added.
Licence Bureau signed up a mixed variety of new fleet customers in first half of 2017 including Norfolk based, Foulger Transport, as well as seeing a rise in checks for current customers.
“The big fleets are seeing their driver numbers and profile change on a daily basis, so many are now adopting more stringent checks on both new and existing employees.
“It has taken its time but it’s good to see the education work the industry has done is finally paying off to make UK roads safer,” said Maycock.
