Fleet operators are being asked to take part in a survey organised by the Association for Driving Licence Verification, of which Jaama is a member, on the potential demand for access to online Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) training course attendance data for drivers.
The data is currently collected and managed by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). The ADLV said the data was important for compliance and in knowing more about drivers it contributed to greater road safety.
The ADLV believes that the DVSA can and should add CPC course and attendance data to driver data files held by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). It says that a significant number of fleet operators would support the addition of the data either to a driver’s existing record or available in a bulk online format.
As a result, the DVLA has asked the ADLV to put together a business case to confirm fleet industry demand for the additional dataset.
To gather the data, ADLV member companies have been asked to survey their customers over the next month, along with other relevant industry contacts who work with operators of LGVs or PSVs. The Association is also encouraging other trade associations that represent operators of trucks, buses and coaches to also circulate the survey to their memberships and therein ensure the widest possible industry response.
The ADLV hopes that by polling as wide a sample as possible it will generate a high response to provide the DVLA with a suitable business case for adding the data. The survey is available at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2J7VJQW
