Most company chauffeurs and drivers assume if you are assigned to drive a company vehicle that the vehicle is properly licensed and insured, and someone in the company has taken care of everything needed to be on the road.
While it might be a safe assumption, it remains the responsibility of the chauffeur to make sure the vehicle is completely legal for the job assigned. This means it is the driver’s obligation to check for a copy of the vehicle registration in the vehicle and see the date is current. Likewise, it means checking the registration tags on the vehicle, a valid insurance card in the vehicle, and all proper markings are affixed to the vehicle. This includes state permit and DOT numbers on display, especially if your driver is crossing state lines.
If you or your chauffeurs are involved in an accident or pulled over for any reason, including a roadside inspection point, your company is responsible for making sure everything is in order. If it is not, you may be cited. So make chauffeurs and drivers your last line of defense before hitting the road.
