50 shades of grey
There is currently a noticeable increase in numbers of ‘Grey Fleet’ drivers often as the result of rising tax burdens on employees taking company cars. With an increasing environmental focus governing emissions, cars valued above the £40,000 ceiling and national insurance implications employees driving their own vehicles can seem an attractive option dependent upon the mileage undertaken on company business.
However, the grey fleet option can prove a headache for employers who are often unaware of their legal obligations with regard to these vehicles being lawfully on the road, proper compliance checks and adequate insurance cover against third party risks being the most common instances.
Business Driver provide grey fleet driver training which highlights basic checks of all aspects of driver and vehicle safety thus helping employers fulfil their due diligence obligations whilst keeping their fleet drivers safely on the road.
