Being a safe and qualified driver is a key part of many of the job roles at Royal Mail. Part of Royal Mail’s regulatory compliance is to conduct licence checks twice a year for all drivers and ensure they complete their licence details, health and other employment declarations.

Presently, this is done by a manual paper-based process twice a year and we are fully aware that this at times can be complicated and time consuming.
