ADLV and DVLA to Collaborate For Fleets
The Association for Driving License Verification (ADLV) has announced that it will be collaborating with the DVLA to create a service that allows fleet customers to obtain drivers license data on a 24/7 basis. The digital service will let members of ADLV, as well as other organizations that meet the applicable requirements and who subscribe to the service, to run license checks in real time as long as the license holder has provided consent.
The system is expected to greatly enhance the speed of batch processing. It will eventually replace the current system in use by the DVLA. That system, the Electronic Driver Entitlement Checking Service, is used by many fleet operators across the UK. It is expected that the new system will be in place early in 2015.
In addition to providing the licensing information, the system will also allow its users access to management reporting on driver checks. According to Kevin Curtis of the ADLV, “By working closely with the DVLA on this new platform, ADLV members can deliver 24/7 real-time checking and faster batch processing for fleet users. This will be a major advance over the current service and as such the new system will redefine best practice across the sector.”
