Jaama enhances driver licence checking service with eConsent solution

Demonstrated at last week's Fleet Show, the eConsent solution enables customers to request checking approval via devices such as personal computers or smartphones rather than drivers having to physically complete, sign and return a paper mandate.

Jaama managing director Martin Evans said: “The new service allows drivers to accept or decline consent for licence checks using a secure website rather than completing a paper mandate. Once drivers have provided consent, it is valid for three years from that date or until consent is revoked or no longer required.

“eConsent is a convenient method for employers or vehicle providers to obtain approval from employees and associated drivers to perform checks on their driving licence before allowing them to drive company-provided vehicles.”

Jaama delivers driver licence checking through its fully integrated Key2 vehicle and driver management system or as a standalone service. The company also provides driver licence validation services direct to fleet operators as well as through contract hire and leasing companies.

Jaama’s driver licence checking service is provided via a direct and secure web-based interface with the DVLA.

Evans added: “The only way an employer can be absolutely certain that a member of staff is licensed to drive a certain vehicle type and the number of endorsement points they have on the licence, is to carry out regular checks against the DVLA database.

“Licence checking helps employers meet their duty of car responsibilities under Health and Safety Executive guidelines and contributes to building a comprehensive profile of drivers so that an action plan can be implemented for any individuals deemed to be at risk.”
