The compliance and fleet management provider, Licence Bureau, has checked its two millionth driving licence since being founded in 2003.
Continuous improvements to IT infrastructure and security has enabled Licence Bureau 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), the most of any independent provider prior to the Electronic Driver Entitlement Checking Service (EDECS) system being turned off.
This is due to the launch of new and innovative compliance 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.
With eConsent now widely used throughout the industry, Licence Bureau’s driving licence checking feature can show driver data as soon as the consent form or eConsent request is signed and received from the employee.
Furthermore, requested driving licence re-checks are available through the portal just three minutes after they are requested, giving customers a flexible and efficient service whenever they need it.
Malcolm Maycock, managing director of Licence Bureau, 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.”
