A Written Company Car Policy in a booklet given to all who drive vehicles on behalf of the Company, is a must for Vehicle Duty of Care managers serious about protecting themselves, their company and drivers.

All vehicles owned by the Company, an employee or third party, when driven on business for the company the driver must be aware of their responsibilities and that of the company.

Our favourite saying in this business is "It is not what you have done but what you can prove you have done!" and the best way is to have it written down for all to see!

You only need one disgruntled driver to cause you and your company grief!

Your company car policy given in a booklet to each driver and signed for by them makes it difficult for anybody to argue with your written word.

We have used an example of what we mean by including in full a Company Car Policy written by us for a large company incorporating some of their instructions.


COMPANY DRIVER

“Driver” means anyone who drives a vehicle either regularly or occasionally on company business. Part-time drivers, such as warehouse staff or employees who have to use a company vehicle as a means of transporting themselves/equipment or carrying out errands in the course of the company’s business, in this instance are considered to be business drivers. This includes those who own their own vehicles and carry out errands or business for the company. They must, therefore, obey the same rules as other Company Drivers.

Hired drivers should have available for inspection, an original current driver’s licence (both parts) and have had accepted by the responsible Director or VDOC Manager, an Insurance Declaration Form and a Temporary Driver Declaration form. At this stage his/her name should be added to the Authorised Drivers list on a temporary basis before commencing driving.
