What is a fleet driver?
Any company or government agency that owns vehicles for their employees has a “fleet” of vehicles. Some examples are car rental companies, public utility trucks, public bus, taxi cabs, leased company vehicles, or even police vehicles. Fleet drivers don’t pay for their own insurance, the company does.
