Press Release

ADLV Working With DVLA on New Real-Time Driving Licence Data Verification System For Fleets

The recently launched ADLV (the Association for Driving Licence Verification) www.adlv.co.uk has announced that it is now working closely with the DVLA on a new digital service for fleet customers to check driving licence data in real-time. Subject to licence holder consent, the new secure digital web services technology will enable ADLV members, and other organizations meeting DVLA requirements who sign up to the service, to perform 24/7 real-time licence checks for the first time. The new system will also enable faster batch processing of licence data.

Ultimately, it is intended that the new service will replace the DVLA's current EDECS (Electronic Driver Entitlement Checking Service) system, which is used by members of the ADLV to provide secure driver licence information to many UK fleet operators of all sizes across UK industry. Fleet users of the service will also continue to have access to comprehensive management reporting on driver checks using the services of Approved Operators of the ADLV.

Kevin Curtis the ADLV's Technical Director believes that the new service's benefits are clear and that there will also be a best practice dividend. In his view, "By working closely with the DVLA on this new platform, ADLV members can deliver 24/7 real-time checking and faster batch processing for fleet users. This will be a major advance over the current service and as such the new system will re-define best practice across the sector."
