Top ten UK lease firm ALD Automotive has launched a new risk management programme for drivers using their own cars on company business.

Called Car Allowance Road Risk Solution, the system provides management information on mileage reporting, driving licence validation, MoT, tax and service reminders and insurance validation, and operates as part of ALD’s DriveSafe risk management programme.

“Our research and discussions with many companies has highlighted that numerous organisations allowing staff to drive their own cars on business and operating company car cash alternative policies are walking a health and safety tightrope,” said ALD sales director Mel Dawson.

“Our recommendation is that companies do not allow staff to drive their own cars on business unless the driver provides the requisite management information.”
