Ebbon-Dacs has purchased Licence Check in order to expand the range of online solutions it can provide to the vehicle leasing community.

Licence Check works with both private and public sector customers, including end user fleets, vehicle leasing and rental suppliers, transport and logistics companies and coach and bus operators.

The licence checking company’s range of services was expanded under the Driver And Vehicle Information Solution brand, DAVIS, a web solution to help manage driver and vehicle fleet compliance.

All existing staff will remain with Licence Check, which will continue to be based in Derby.

Ebbon-Dacs specialises in delivering hosted, web technology solutions. 

“Our strategy is to remain solely focussed on providing online solutions that help connect the vehicle leasing community.  Our principle investments will be in new capabilities for our fleet vehicle purchasing and mobile logistics platforms, while continuing to build up our more recent fleet compliance systems area.  

“DAVIS, coupled with our own latest mobile technologies, is the means by which we plan to offer our customers the best platform in this important health and safety area for both end-user fleets and our many customers who provide services to those fleets,” said Robert Pilkington, director at Ebbon-Dacs.

“Licence checking, risk assessment and compliance will assume an ever-increasing significance, not just for company but also for privately-owned vehicles, to ensure that duty of care requirements are being met in terms of both driving licence and vehicle condition checking,” added Craig Gibbin, director at Ebbon-Dacs.

Richard Brown, managing director of Licence Check, welcomed the new relationship and said there were significant and exciting opportunities going forward.

“Ebbon-Dacs wanted to move into the driver compliance business space and saw our DAVIS solution as the most advanced technological solution on the market.

“We were also very impressed with Ebbon-Dacs’ technology platforms which are complementary to our own, as well as their existing mobile applications which we see as a great opportunity for future development both here in the UK and in Europe,” he said.
