The LICENCECHECK service is a secure hosted service that allows companies to implement effective and cost efficient driving licence checking and validation of employee licences. But the service is much more than a simple method of driving licence verification. It also provides fleet managers and administrators with the tools and reports to manage their drivers by risk profile or driver type such that re-checks are carried out regularly and contemporaneously as part of an automated process. The service will flag up warnings, pending expirations and will automatically re-check following expiration dates to ensure that the driver continues to be lawfully entitled to drive a vehicle. LICENCECHECK will also manage the consent process so that employers will have the right to carry out an online driving licence check, as frequently as required, over the 3 year period for which the consent remains effective.
LICENCECHECK uses a secure link to the DVLA’s Access to Driver Data service. Since the abolition of the paper counterpart in 2015, this represents the only definitive source of driver history and licence entitlement. Our service works in real-time and is intended to be available to subscribers on a 24/7/365 basis. A request from LICENCECHECK to the DVLA online service will typically return the results to the secure client account in less than 15 seconds. The details returned to the service will incorporate any changes made to the driver record within the previous 24 hours by the DVLA. An “Immediate Actions” screen will warn employers of any expirations, disqualifications or revocations that have been returned by the service following a request to the DVLA for that particular driver. So Companies are in a position to take prompt action to take the driver off the road until the situation is resolved. The LICENCECHECK Support Team will also telephone clients where a licence has been reported as revoked or a driver disqualified as an additional security measure. The Support Team will also investigate and help resolve those cases where a request to the DVLA fails to return a result because the driver record has been suppressed.
For those companies employing vocational drivers, LICENCECHECK provides additional functionality by allowing CPC, Tacho Card, ADR, MiDAS and medical information and expiration dates to be manually entered into the driver record. Once the details have been included, they will be reported to managers in the same way as the other licence data.

Premier Chauffeur Service
When we initially looked at licence checking we looked at checking ourselves through the DVLA, but after speaking to LICENCECHECK and seeing their system we decided to take the route with them. We had over 150 members of staff to check initially which meant getting the mandates set up would have a huge task, but LICENCECHECK were happy to allow us to email the mandates in a bulk fashion. The system is now ticking over nicely and has already flagged a driver who was potentially going to be banned for not supplying driver details for a speeding fine. Basically it works! Thanks to all at LICENCECHECK!
Facilities Management Service
We use the LICENCECHECK service to check all drivers driving company cars or on company business. This was originally implemented as a risk management measure to demonstrate to our insurers that we are doing all we can to minimise the risk to the company's insurances, but we now also regard it as a necessary step to ensure our employees are fully compliant with the company car policy and with the law. LICENCECHECK have revealed occasions where a licence has been cancelled, completely unbeknown to the driver, which has resulted in unlicensed drivers being removed from the road prior to offences being committed or a risk to our corporate reputation being incurred. This is clearly for the mutual benefit of both the company and the driver and we are very pleased with the service we have received.
