License Bureau supports grey fleets

Licence Bureau has grown its campaign to help companies increase the compliance of their grey fleet, as it sees companies continuing to struggle to come to terms with drivers using their own vehicles for business use.

‘When we first meet a company, we ask how many of their employees use their own vehicle to carry out business journeys,’ explained Malcolm Maycock, managing director of Licence Bureau. ‘The majority simply don’t know. Not because they are complacent or that they do not realise the importance of grey fleet compliance, but because they often struggle to establish internal processes that truly get to grips with all aspects of grey fleet management.’

Under its Grey Fleet Management Services operation, Licence Bureau checks every single insurance certificate provided by employees, rather than just relying on a self-declaration from the driver. This includes checking the policy’s small print is in line with business use requirements. Licence Bureau then sets-up email alerts to automatically remind employees when their policy has expired.

MOTs and VEDs are checked against government data, whilst driver licences are examined to ensure they haven’t expired, been revoked or the driver is disqualified or has a high level of points.

Licence Bureau has also launched a seven-page Q&A on all aspects of grey fleet to help companies both large and small.
