A driver’s license check is a meticulous process aimed at verifying the authenticity, validity, and status of an individual’s driver’s license. At CHECK YOUR DRIVER, we meticulously cross-reference the data provided on the submitted card with the information held by the custodian of records. This comprehensive verification involves a detailed examination of personal name and surname details, license codes, PrDP categories, as well as the validity period from and expiry dates.


It’s crucial to note that our license checks go beyond a mere trace. Unlike a license trace, which only identifies a license number, our thorough process ensures that the data on the submitted card is scrutinized and cross-referenced for accuracy. This is essential because fraudulent syndicates often employ sophisticated tactics, such as using valid license numbers to produce multiple counterfeit cards.


By conducting these detailed checks, CYD ensures compliance with driving laws and regulations as stipulated by the National Road Traffic Act (NRTA), providing our clients with peace of mind and protection against potential risks.

The staggering statistics speak for themselves (link may be included for reference). With the prevalence of fraudulent documents on the rise, it’s imperative to take proactive measures. Over a decade of thorough verification, we’ve found that more than 50% of all foreign licenses examined turn out to be fake.


The consequences of overlooking this crucial step are grave. Not only does it expose you to the risk of having insurance claims repudiated, potentially resulting in significant financial losses, but imagine the catastrophic scenario of a fatality involving one of your drivers holding a counterfeit license on public roads.


Under the National Road Traffic Act (NRTA) it’s the duty of operators to ensure that their drivers are properly licensed and compliant with legal requirements. By conducting comprehensive drivers license checks, you not only safeguard your business’s reputation and financial stability but also prioritise the safety of all road users.

The frequency of driver checks depends on the unique needs of our diverse clientele. For businesses employing drivers, whether for small delivery vehicles, motorcycles, courier cars, or heavy commercial trucks, conducting a driver check during the hiring process is essential as part of pre-employment screening. If you haven’t done so yet, don’t fret—reach out to us, and we’ll ensure you’re not exposed to risks.


It’s important to note that once a check has been conducted, clients should continue to monitor drivers by conducting checks when they renew their licenses or PrDPs. Many renewals may present fake documents, even if the initial check years ago verified them as genuine. Don’t leave yourself vulnerable to risk! For our broker clients, we view their role as pivotal in raising awareness of fraudulent driver documents with their clients. Brokers can simply reach out to us, and we’ll take care of the rest-consider this an added-value service for your clients in risk management.


As for our insurance and underwriting clients, conducting driver checks at the claim stage is crucial for gathering all necessary facts to make informed decisions. Additionally, insurers can incorporate driver checks at policy inception to proactively manage risks.
