- Does the driver have more than 3 years of driving experience?
- Do they meet their insurance carrier’s specific criteria regarding violations and accident history? Each carrier is a little different.
- Does the driver meet your company’s driver requirements? (Your company should have a written policy that includes driver history guidelines. Contact your account manager for help building a policy or evaluating current policies.)
