Case Study

There is a legal requirement for all businesses to ensure that their drivers have a valid driving licence. To consolidate and gain control of this vitally important area of business, Helston Garages decided to use Silvey Fleet’s driver licence check service.

Managing a busy fleet and finding the time to do licence checks is a necessity, but can be difficult to manage.

The Challenge

Having taken the route to manually check driving licences this way, Helston Garages found that although they successfully completed this task once a year, it still put huge pressure on general managers at each dealership. In addition to this, if there were drivers deemed to be high risk they would need their licences checked more regularly.  In a business made up of multiple dealerships, this was tough work to manage.


The Solution

To consolidate and gain control of this vitally important area of business Helston Garages decided to use Silvey Fleet’s driver licence check service.

As an existing fuel card customer with Silvey Fleet, Craig Glanville, Helston Garages Group Financial Director, saw there was an opportunity to consolidate checking driving licences through Silvey Fleet’s new Miles Monitor service.


The Benefits

Outsourcing this work has not only removed the time-consuming administration at over 30 of Craig’s dealerships, it has alleviated the compliance burden for Helston Garages whilst delivering simple, consolidated reporting which offers a clear audit trail.

With over 1000 employees working at Helston Garages, Silvey Fleet worked closely with Craig and the team to support the drivers in completing their mandates. Having this support allowed for drivers to have their first check completed within minutes of giving their consent to check the licence. 


What do you value most?

The value that Craig has seen from using Miles Monitor driving licence check is not just to do with service but with the management of future checks. He knows that the company has minimised their exposure to risk, plus he has the peace of mind that their fleet drivers have the correct documentation to drive on the road. 


"With over 1000 employees manually checking driving licences put huge pressure on general managers at each dealership. Using Silvey Fleet’s Miles Monitor driving licence check service has alleviated the compliance burden, plus provided consolidated reporting and a clear audit trail."
