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.


Driving Licences

You are required to have a full driving licence valid for the groups of vehicle you are issued with. You must inform the Company of any changes affecting your licence or ability to drive.

Periodic checks of diving licences will be made by a Company representative. You must inform the VDOC Manager responsible for the Vehicle Policy Document if you are being prosecuted for any serious motoring offence (i.e. a conviction for any drugs or drinking offence, dangerous driving or failing to stop after an accident, etc).

If you are disqualified from driving in the UK your Company vehicle will be recovered at your cost and you will lose entitlement to use of a Company vehicle for the duration of the disqualification period. The Company will not automatically reinstate the right to a Company vehicle after a period of disqualification and all circumstances will be taken into account by the VDOC Manager responsible for the Car Policy Document in making this decision.
