Regular checks of your vehicle, before starting a journey, will reduce any potential risks which could cause an accident.
Checking your tyre tread and inflation is adequate, whether the water levels and screen wash is sufficient, and if the wipers and lights are working, are just some of the simple checks you can do. If you are involved in an accident and it can be proved any of these were a contributing factor to the event, you could be prosecuted.
A simple and easy way to complete a vehicle check is via the Driver App (if applicable to your company). You receive notifications to prompt you when they are required and the check sheet is easy to follow and submit. If you find anything which needs attention on the vehicle, you can then book in a service or repair, or find your nearest tyre centre, all via the Driver App.
