The newly launched trade body has been formed to help fleet users with the issue of getting responsible and secure access to DVLA driving licence data following the

Formed in part as a response to the upcoming abolition of the current driving licence paper counterpart, members of this new association are already established providers of driver licence checking through the EDECS service.

The DVLA plans to provide its own service to fleets from the New Year, but the ADLV says its members will ‘provide employers with a new and comprehensive alternative for validating the driver entitlement data for their employees’. It has also announced that it is working closely with the DVLA on a new digital service for fleet customers to check driving licence data in real-time 24/7.

Jaama managing director Martin Evans said: ‘Jaama has for many years provided a first-class and critically secure facility for employers to check the driving licences of their at-work drivers.

‘Joining ADLV changes nothing for our customers except that we will work in partnership with the organisation and the DVLA in the development of the next generation of the EDECS licence checking service.

‘However, Jaama’s service is much more than a driving licence validation facility. Our driver licence checking service means that not only is the administrative burden greatly reduced for customers, but they have all information on drivers and their vehicles held in one central database, building a combined intelligent profile and highlighting exceptions.’
