Driving at work

The management of work-related driving must take into account the requirements of health and safety legislation and road traffic law.

The information in this toolkit will assist managers and applies to all staff who drive on University business, regularly or infrequently, including those who use their own vehicles.

Driving licence information

Driving licences can be viewed at https://www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence.

You will need your driving licence number, national insurance number and postcode. If you need to share your driving licence with your line manager you can also get a code for them to use.

Give the code and last 8 digits of your driving licence to your line manager who should go to https://www.gov.uk/check-driving-information. They have a limited time to view your licence information for penalty points, endorsements, full and provisional entitlements.
