The ADLV (Association for Driving Licence Verification and Vehicles) has s broadened its remit to include driver insurance, training accreditation and more.
In future, ADLV will seek to enable its members to access a wide range of online datasets, including:
- Driver Insurance Information
Insurance data will identify insured vehicles in the UK. The data supplied will confirm that a vehicle has an active insurance policy relating to it.
- Driver Training Accreditation
As well as providing CPC expiration data from the DVLA record, there is growing demand for ADLV members to also include the detailed driver training records (CPC) in terms of the courses attended, passes / accreditation secured and dates to transport managers.
- Grey Fleet Data
In championing grey fleet compliance, the ADLV is reviewing a number of datasets along with data available through its partners. This includes: vehicle particulars (V5C), MOT status and Road Fund Licence status.
- Driver information for EU countries
The ADLV believes that the combined data offering will help fleet managers to maintain even greater control and compliance. More importantly it will help them contribute to Road Safety initiatives.
In addition, by broadening the remit, the ADLV also expects to attract new members from around these data areas and thus represent a wider cross-section of the industry. This in turn will increase its ‘voice’ and influence as an industry lobby group.
ADLV’s deputy chair Terry Hiles said: “The new data offerings represent complimentary areas that currently are not well served by existing trade associations or pressure groups.
By adding the new data files, we can build on the considerable success and expertise gained from offering licence checking to date. In doing so, we can deliver additional cohesive support to fleet managers who are keen on both compliance and Road Safety.
“Initial soundings have been extremely positive and we expect demand to be extremely high. The influence of the ADLV as an industry lobbying group and trade association will also grow in line with this.”
