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.


National Speed Limits

It is company policy to instruct its drivers not to exceed UK speed limits on the grounds of public safety and economy of operation.

Details of national speed limits for Vehicles are contained in the publication; "The Highway Code." Where there is a traffic sign indicating a speed limit, this should not be exceeded.

Remember in addition to being illegal, driving at 10 M.P.H. above the legal limit may only fractionally improve journey times but may use as much as 25% more fuel. The Company will not condone the breaking of speed limits. It will expect drivers to pay any fines incurred and treat such offences as requiring company disciplinary procedures.
