Jaama has added eConsent functionality to its driver licence checking service, removing the need to physically sign and return a paper mandate.
Jaama managing director Martin Evans said: “The new service allows drivers to accept or decline consent for licence checks using a secure website rather than completing a paper mandate. Once drivers have provided consent, it is valid for three years from that date or until consent is revoked or no longer required.
“eConsent is a convenient method for employers or vehicle providers to obtain approval from employees and associated drivers to perform checks on their driving licence before allowing them to drive company-provided vehicles.
Demand from fleets for administratively simple but robust validation of employees’ driving licences is increasing following last year’s abolition of the paper counterpart of the driving licence.
Jaama’s comprehensive licence checking service greatly reduces the administrative burden for employers. The system provides powerful management information because all data on drivers and their vehicles is held in one central database which makes intelligent driver profiling and highlighting exceptions straightforward.
The driver licence checking service is provided via a direct and secure web-based interface with the DVLA.
