Recruiting agency drivers

Agency drivers play an important role in supporting businesses, but using drivers who are unfamiliar with an operation and unknown to the operator can lead to problems.

Such difficulties can be avoided with careful planning, good knowledge of compliance issues and by following best practice. For more advice, read tips for recruiting good agency drivers from our Member Advice Centre.
