Driver’s Licence on your Resume?

dashboard-1856_640Have you included your driver’s licence on your resume? If not, why not?  Is it a case of just forgetting to, or is it thinking that it is not relevant to the job you are applying for?

Even though a reason to include it isn’t obvious and the job advertisement doesn’t state the need for a driver’s licence in the selection criteria; should you include it in your resume anyway?

Yes, is my resounding answer, it is a good idea to include it? Why? My experience is that even though it is not always stated in a job advertisement that a driver’s licence is required, sometimes ‘current driver’s licence’ are keywords entered into an applicant tracking system which is used to read applicant resumes and eliminate those not meeting the job requirements. Check your resume to see if you have included your driver’s licence and if you haven’t, weigh up whether it may be wise to do so.
