Chevin Fleet Solutions has launched an addition to its FleetWave fleet management system. The Driver Licence Checking module is designed to simplify and reduce the administrative burden of driver licence management.
The Driver Licence Checking module is a ‘plug and play’ module that integrates into the Fleetwave fleet management system to provide a fully automated process for any business to verify the licence status of all fleet vehicle drivers.
The new module will process, via secure connection, data directly from the government driver licensing authority to provide fleet managers with a real-time, holistic view over all fleet drivers’ licence status. Additionally, this module will provide automatic alerts to system users when an ‘at risk’ driver is identified.
Managing director of Chevin Fleet Solutions, Ashley Sowerby, notes that legally individuals within a business are responsible for ensuring that all fleet vehicle drivers are permitted to drive. So, should one of a company's fleet vehicle drivers be driving with an invalid licence it is the business, and the name driver, that will be liable for the legal consequences.
“Our Driver Licence Checking module integrates into the FleetWave system easily and enables businesses to significantly reduce this risk and take back control,” says Sowerby.
