Select and Screen Safe Drivers

Are your church members' lives in the right hands?

Select and Screen Safe Drivers

Leaders can't afford to assume that anyone who drives or owns a car is suitable to drive for the church. Instead, leaders should use only qualified drivers who are properly insured, and who have safe driving records.

For the purpose of screening, drivers can be classified into two groups: regular and occasional drivers. The first group consists of individuals who drive church vehicles, or who drive their own vehicle for the church, on a frequent basis. The second group includes individuals who drive their own vehicle for the church, but only infrequently.

It should be noted that both groups represent the church, and that the church potentially can be held liable for the actions of both groups while driving on their behalf. Because of this, reasonable care must be taken when it comes to the selection and screening of drivers for both groups.
