DriveTech cuts licence check admin with new e-Check service

DriveTech has introduced a new e-Check service that streamlines the licence checking process.

UK driving licence

DriveTech’s e-Check service is formally approved by the DVLA and GDPR compliant

Available for use by UK and non-UK licence holders, the service brings minimal data capture requirements –  business drivers just to have to complete a simple online form, including notably an e-signature.  DriveTech then conducts the check with the DVLA (or DVA in Northern Ireland) and report this back to the employer and driver via its online FleetRiskManager portal. This provides business managers with a ‘live view’ to help maintain a simple overview of which drivers in their fleet are eligible to drive, what risks individuals might pose and current and future licence statuses, including expiring photocards.

Formally approved by the DVLA, the system is GDPR-compliant.

Colin Paterson, head of marketing at DriveTech, commented: “We have invested a lot of development time and energy to develop our e-Check system to be a reliable, tested, licencing authority-approved system that can really help streamline this essential but often time-consuming process for responsible employers.”
