Driving Monitor launches Fleet Covid Passport

Fleet news logo

Driving Monitor has developed a new Fleet Covid Passport system to support the return of fleet driver training, giving companies confidence in the safe delivery of these services.

The company has seen surge in fleet driver training since UK lockdown restrictions were eased on April 12.

Its network of more than 500 driver trainers have been logging their vaccination certifications on the system ready for the re-launch as the lockdown restrictions eased this week.

Kevin Curtis, director of Driving Monitor, said: “This upgrade to the exiting ‘Passport to Drive’ system we’ve been running over the past 10 years now gives fleets the extra protection of a Covid-19 vaccination certification programme.

“Safety is our number one concern at Driving Monitor, and we’ve been combining driver safety and technology together for the last 20 years in fleet risk management, so this was a natural progression to upgrade our Passport to Drive system.”

On top of the new Fleet Covid Passport system, Driving Monitor is also looking at rolling out Lateral Flow Testing across its network as a further measure to protect trainers and customers.

The Driving Monitor Passport to Drive system is at the heart of its compliance tool. Fleets can now combine telematics profiles, accident data, risk assessment & training records, DVLA checks along with a whole host of vehicle and fleet data to give organisations a central portal for driver safety.

The concept of the flagship programme means fleet and SHE managers can do away with the multitude of systems and logins and have one simple system giving 100% coverage of their compliance.

By upgrading the platform to cover Covid-19 vaccination certification along with Lateral Flow testing the system allows fleets to come out of lockdown in the safest possible way, according to Driving Monitor.

    The science indicates the vaccinated can still pass on the disease and like an MOT the lateral flow test is valid at time of taking only - so congratulations on fostering a false sense of security with your bio-safety theatre
