The vehicle rental industry is warning customers that the Government's plans to abolish the paper counterpart to the photocard driving licence, could leave them facing increased costs or queues when picking up their vehicle.
The Department for Transport (DfT) must ensure that the recently reorganised agencies serving motorists work harder to deliver a better service for all, including business customers, a group of MPs have said.
After 93 years, motorists won’t have to display a paper tax disc from today and as a result the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA) is reminding fleets on what the changes means for them.
ACFO, the UK representative body for fleet decision-makers, is optimistic that the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency’s (DVLA) new online driver licence checking service will meet with the approval of operators.
Male drivers between the ages of 20 and 30 were the most common group to be disqualified from driving in the 12 months between July 2013 and June 2014, according to new figures obtained by the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM).
Fleets were given the very latest news from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) on the abolition of the tax disc, the removal of the paper counterpart and the suppression of V5C, at a special seminar hosted by Fleet News and ACFO last week.
Fleet News and ACFO, the national body for fleet decision-makers, will be hosting a debate at this year’s Fleet News Company Car in Action event to provide some much-needed clarity around changes planned by the Driver and Vehicle Licence Agency (DVLA).
