Promoting the importance of driving licence checking for at-work drivers

Jaama has joined the Association for Driving Licence Verification (ADLV). Currently their electronic driver entitlement checking service (EDECS) is used by a wide range of fleets and contract hire and leasing companies to check the validity of employees’ driving licences.

The ADLV was launched last month in part as a response to the end of year abolition of the current photocard driving licence paper counterpart, with the new trade body aiming to provide fleet users with responsible and secure access to DVLA driving licence data utilising EDECS, which Jaama already does.

A spokesman for the ADLV said: “To ensure that the highest quality standards are maintained, the ADLV will conduct regular audits of members and operate within a strict code of conduct to ensure that the DVLA’s data assurance standards are met.”

Jaama’s EDECS service works on an online batch e-processing basis, subject to licence holder consent, where as the planned DVLA service is expected to operate on a single query ad-hoc basis requiring drivers to register their consent every time their employer wishes to access their driver record from the Government agency.

Jaama managing director Martin Evans said: “Joining ADLV changes nothing for our customers except that we will work in partnership with the organisation and the DVLA in the development of the next generation of the EDECS licence checking service.”
