Licence Bureau reaches milestone licence check
Managing director Malcolm Maycock said: “Reaching two million checks is an extremely impressive achievement for everyone at Licence Bureau. The driver to receive the two millionth check will shortly receive a free half-day in-car training session, while the client will be offered a free driver training seminar for up to 16 drivers.
“Our award-winning compliance management portal has been introduced to an ever-growing list of clients, which will allow us to strengthen our position as we target further growth.”
The Hemel Hempstead-based company, which was founded in 2003, said that continuous improvements to IT infrastructure and security has enabled it to check the same number of licences in the last 35 months, as it did in the previous 10 years.
According to the latest DVLA data, Licence Bureau checked over 400,000 licences in the 2015/16 financial year, a 29% increase, year-on-year. March also saw Licence Bureau check over 22,000 licences solely through the Access to Driver Data (ADD), which it says is the most of any independent provider prior to the Electronic Driver Entitlement Checking Service (EDECS) system being turned off.
The fir said its service has been aided by the launch of new tools such as its Compliance Managed Services (CMS) portal that features everything from Driving Licence Checking to Owner Driver Management, Employee Audit, Permit to Drive, Risk Excellence, eConsent, Right to Work and Employee Screening.
