Licence Bureau appointed to check JLL licences

Malcolm Maycock

Licence Bureau has announced that it has been appointed by JLL to carry out driver licence checks.

The commercial real estate services and investment management firm employs more than 2,500 people. Licence Bureau will maintain the records of the company’s drivers with its CMS portal, which can manage both company and grey fleet drivers.

An audit of more than 900 employees was carried out before beginning the process of seeing whether they are eligible for a permit to drive on business.

Licence Bureau implements regular checks of drivers’ licences, up to a cumulative 400 across the business, monitoring entitlement to drive as well as tracking the number of endorsements or other critical information, such as whether a licence is about to expire. Any alerts are flagged up to the JLL management team.

Licence Bureau’s managing director Malcolm Maycock (pictured) said: “With drivers’ information and driving records stored electronically as well as large organisations having offices and staff spread over a wide geographical area, it is extremely difficult to be confident that your records are up-to-date, often not until it’s too late.”

JLL’s head of UK operations Darren Battle said: “Licence Bureau’s portal provides us with a highly effective way to manage what would otherwise be, a massive task, which we would struggle to handle manually.

“The tool gives us complete confidence that we are fully compliant when it comes to driver eligibility.”
