Answering the demands of UK Fleet and Haulage managers, members of the Association for Driving Licence Verification (ADLV) are now adding Tacho and CPC data to their products.
This new ‘live’ data allows ADLV member’s customers to further automate driver checking, streamlining the processes involved and supporting more frequent checks. The move reflects the output of positive and sustained discussions between the ADLV and the DVLA over the past 18 months, it says.
The ADLV is keen to commend the professionalism and support received from the DVLA, who responded to ADLV survey figures showing that strong demand for CPC and Tacho data existed amongst major haulage organisations.
The ADLV has also confirmed that it is soon to commence talks with the DVLA regarding the addition of data for CPC holder ‘Driver Training Record’ information. This data would add additional automation for fleet managers seeking to ensure that drivers are CPC compliant.
The ADLV is confident that there will be strong demand for this data from fleet and haulage managers and intend to undertake further research with their customers to support the case to the DVLA for more data.
Richard Payne-Gill, ADLV deputy chairman, said: “With the CPC and Tacho data added into the mix, our members are receiving an unprecedented level of interest for this information.
“We are also receiving approaches from companies seeking to join the ADLV; so it’s clear that there is active demand from Fleet managers seeking effective solutions for their business.
“We are also keen to add more data sets, which help employers ‘know their drivers’ better. This reduces risk, boosts HR management and supports road safety. One of these is the CPC holder driver training record information, which given today’s announcement seems like a natural development.
“We thank the DVLA for their support to date and look forward to working closely with them on areas that support the excellent work of fleet managers across all sectors.”
