Phil Chapman, managing director at RAC Claims Services, said: 'Almost 30% of the UK's 2.8 million company car drivers have points on their licences, nearly double that of the average driver and there are about 286,000 disqualified drivers in the UK.
'This year alone, three million sets of penalty points and fines will be awarded for speeding and driving offences and many of them will go on the licences of employees driving on company business. It is essential that any fleet manager knows the status of its driver's licences.'
Fleets using the system will be provided with reports on compliance status including an audit summary and detailed information on each driver. RAC Business Solutions will also offer advice and additional services including driver training.
Chapman added: 'If one of your drivers has an accident while driving on company business and they don't have a valid licence, you could be held liable.'
