Licence Bureau was the first company to provide a business solution to the issue of checking driving licences in the UK. The process was created using the DVLA database in 2003 and endorsed in 2004 when the Health and Safety Executive launched a document called ‘Driving at Work’.
The business initially provided its customers with a website portal providing driving licence checking results only; this later included documentation validation for vehicles used at work.
In 2014 Licence Bureau launched a unique new multi awards winning web portal, ‘Compliance Managed Services’ (CMS), which allows clients to access, check and improve their drivers quickly and efficiently online via an exception management alert system.
The CMS portal features everything from Driving Licence Checking to Owner Driver Management, Employee Audit, Permit to Drive, Risk Assessments, Training, eConsent, CPC and Tacho data, Right to Work and Employee Screening.
Continuous improvements to IT infrastructure and security has enabled Licence Bureau to consolidate itself as the leading independent licence checking provider.
According to the latest DVLA data, Licence Bureau checked over 534,000 licences in the 2016/17 financial year, a 33% increase, year-on-year.
With eConsent now widely used throughout the industry, Licence Bureau’s driving licence checking feature can show driver data as soon as the consent form or eConsent request is signed and received from the employee.
