    Answered . If you are a licensed driver then you have no - ZERO - exposure for doing your job.

    The CC / probationer will face serious music should SHE fail to seek proper prior permission to go where she goes when she chooses to go there, but that is exclusively her dilemma.

    You are not aiding and abetting, acting as a principal or committing any other crime (unless you do not have authority to be a "senior's driver).

    I hope this has been helpful to you.
