Licence Check and Junction 17 DDT launch driving licence checking qualification

Richard Brown, Licence Check

Licence Check has teamed up with Junction 17 Defensive Driver Training to launch a new level three driving licence checking qualification.

This is a professional qualification delivered through ProQual, regulated by Ofqual and is designed for fleet, administration staff and transport managers who are involved in the process of overseeing or supervising drivers.

The course itself will be managed and delivered electronically and candidates will have access to learning resources and materials within the course portal, allowing them to fit the course and assessment around their own work and lifestyle commitments.   

Nominally the total course time is estimated to be six hours, allowing the candidates to collect evidence which is undertaken in their workplace as part of their usual role through a process of continuous assessment.

Richard Brown, managing director of Licence Check, said: “At the end of the course, successful candidates will have a good grasp of the reasons why they should check the driver’s licence.

"For example, they will know what to look for in a genuine document; understand what the information shown on the licence means; will be able to carry out a check on this and understand the wider implications in terms of risk for the business.

“The qualification will equip managers and administrators with the knowledge and skills to confidently and competently tackle what should be the absolute and fundamental first check for anyone employing, or allowing people, to drive on behalf of a business.”

The course will be delivered electronically under the management of Junction 17 Defensive Driver Training.

Course materials will be provided by Junction 17 and Licence Check.
