Most dealer employees will be driving dealer vehicles for one reason or another, and it is safe to assume that all of them will drive a dealer vehicle at some time. Given that, it is advisable to implement some of the driver safety monitoring used by trucking and livery companies:
Obtain an MVR for each employee when hired and at least annually thereafter;
Suspend driving privileges of any employee with repeat loss incidents or moving violations;
When possible, provide employees with monthly stipends or vehicle leases in lieu of demonstrator vehicles;
Require that any employee assigned a demonstrator vehicle sign a demonstrator agreement;
Institute a driver training program for all standard incident report employees authorized for test drives and demonstrator vehicles; and
Implement use of a standard incident report form for recording all collisions involving dealership staff and vehicles.
