New driving licence data verification system for fleets

22 October 2014

Subject to licence holder consent, the new secure digital web services technology will enable ADLV members, and other organizations meeting DVLA requirements who sign up to the service, to perform 24/7 real-time licence checks for the first time. The new system will also enable faster batch processing of licence data.

Ultimately, it is intended that the new service will replace the DVLA’s current EDECS (Electronic Driver Entitlement Checking Service) system, which is used by members of the ADLV to provide secure driver licence information to many UK fleet operators of all sizes across UK industry. Fleet users of the service will also continue to have access to comprehensive management reporting on driver checks using the services of Approved Operators of the ADLV.

Kevin Curtis the ADLV’s Technical Director believes that the new service’s benefits are clear and that there will also be a best practice dividend. In his view, “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 re-define best practice across the sector.”

Eddie Eusebi a founder member of the ADLV welcomed Kevin’s comments adding, “ The formation of the ADLV means that we are able to work with the DVLA on many different fronts ensuring best practice and compliance for our members.”
