Demand from commercial vehicle operators for administratively simple but robust validation of employees’ driving licences is increasing following last year’s abolition of the paper counterpart to the photocard driving licence.
Jaama, the UK’s leading fleet and asset management software and risk management specialist is a member of the Association for Driving Licence Verification (ADLV).
Visitors to this year’s Commercial Vehicle Show being held at the NEC in Birmingham, from 26-28 April will be able to glean a comprehensive insight into Jaama’s cutting-edge Key2 vehicle and driver management system with modules including Risk Profile and Licence2Check. Jaama, an Associate member of the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) and a partner to the Freight Transport Association’s Van Excellence scheme, is firmly focused on helping fleets achieve compliance best practice through implementation of Key2.
Jaama’s comprehensive licence checking service removes the ‘DIY’ administrative burden for employers and also ensures they have all information on drivers and their vehicles held in one central database, building a combined intelligent profile and highlighting exceptions.
Jaama driver licence checking service enables:
  • Instant ‘real time’ licence checking
  • Paperless management with eConsent
  • Direct, secure, web based feed to the DVLA – fully data protection compliant
  • Fully auditable checking history
  • No costly set up fee – pay per check
  • Stand alone service or full integration into Key2 Vehicle Management
  • Help meeting duty of care responsibility under HSE guidelines
  • Full driver risk profiling
  • Individual or batch checking
  • Provides alerts to fleet decision-makers of licence issues uncovered from the DVLA check
It is critical that fleet decision-makers have a holistic view of driver and vehicle risk and integrate that with licence checking and daily walk-round defect reporting checks.
Implementing a data audit trail weighted by factors such as: driver age, road traffic accidents (cost, frequency, blameworthiness etc.), business miles per annum etc. is a duty of care compliance essential. The weighting points associated with each area can then be accumulated to produce an individual driver total risk profile score according to a company’s individual risk criterion. Depending on an individual driver’s profile targeted remedial action can then be implemented.
