Reasonable Diligence

Reasonable Diligence ( Due diligence) is often linked to the Company ‘failing to name the driver’. For this offence, you will have to show that despite reasonable diligence why you are unsure who to name as the driver.

Every case is judged on its own merit and  there are no guidelines from the courts.To use this defence you will have to show that on the balance of probability, you have done everything you can to work out who was driving.

How to show Reasonable Diligence

  • If you are unsure who the driver was, request the photo evidence from the police.
  • Check your work / diary schedule
  • Ask all other drivers who are insured and have access to the vehicle
