Obligation to check driving licenses in Austria?

The legal situation regarding driving license checks in companies differs in Germany and Austria. Nevertheless, companies should NOT refrain from regularly checking drivers’ licenses, as high costs, expensive liability risks and even penalties can be incurred by the fleet manager or managing director if the obligation to check driving licenses is ignored.

Is the employer obliged to check the driver's license?

A company with a fleet of vehicles is legally obliged to regularly check the required driving license. The regulations in Germany are very strict, but you should not rely on them in Austria either, because the liability risks for the managing director or the fleet manager are very high. §Section 103 KFG 1967 (Austrian Motor Vehicle Act) provides: The owner of the registration may only allow persons to drive his motor vehicle who have the required driving license. A driver’s license check should be carried out regardless of the type and size of the vehicle fleet in order to minimize the liability risk of the managing director – or the head of office/mayor or the fleet manager.

does the comprehensive insurance pay if the driver's license test is missing?

There are also situations in which even comprehensive insurance will not pay out under any circumstances: For example, if you as a managing director or fleet manager let someone drive your vehicle without a valid driver’s license! Without regular driver’s license checks, this is exactly what could happen… In this context, regular driver’s license checks are certainly better than blind trust, which can be expensive.

does the motor vehicle liability insurance pay if the driver's license test is missing?

If entrepreneurs or fleet managers let someone drive a vehicle without a valid driver’s license and an accident occurs, the motor vehicle liability insurance usually covers the compensation of the accident victims, but there may be cost reclaims in the recourse! The managing director or the fleet manager (site manager) is liable.
