Where did you get your drivers licence is an extremely common question asked of South African drivers. Yes, believe it or not, fraudulent drivers licenses are a common phenomenon in our country.
When it comes to employing drivers, companies need to be extra vigilant when it comes to checking their validity of drivers licenses. Insurance companies will not pay out claims if the vehicle owned by the company has been involved in a car accident which was driven by a driver without a valid drivers licence. This could be a huge risk to the company.
Jeff Miller, acting CEO of Fraudcheck, says by conducting a simple on line check through the Fraud Check portal a company would be able in a very short space of time establish the validity of the drivers licence. Such a quick inexpensive enquiry would save a company potentially hundreds of thousands of rands.
