Why is driver’s negligence insurance relevant to recruitment companies?

If a recruitment company is supplying temporary drivers, they may be required to carry driver negligence insurance. This insurance provides cover against claims in respect of damage caused to vehicles being driven by agency supplied drivers to their clients.

Agencies may find that clients try to make them liable under contract in respect of such damage caused by the negligent acts of temporary workers. This type of insurance can only normally be purchased in conjunction with public & employers liability. Cover for driver negligence is normally limited to either £5,000 or £10,000 per claim and the premiums are rated on the number of drivers supplied.

Drivers normally have to be older than 23 with a least 2 years driving experience and at least 180 days working as a driver on the size of vehicle that they are using as an agency driver. Some insurers can be more flexible than others on this stipulation.
