Driver licence checking made easy with FTA


Birmingham, UK; The Freight Transport Association, in conjunction with Licence Bureau, launched at the Commercial Vehicle Show today a driver licence checking service for FTA members.

Health and safety legislation requires companies to have a robust procedure for checking the licences of everyone driving their vehicles, whether HGVs, buses, coaches, vans or company cars.  But the internal checking of licences is often time-consuming and inefficient.

Crucially, revoked, disqualified, provisional and expired licences cannot always be identified when checked this way, particularly if drivers have duplicate licences.

The driver licence checking service means that this labour-intensive job can be managed on behalf of customers.

Licence Bureau’s experience shows that companies using its services can achieve a high level of driver compliance within the first 3-6 weeks of enrolment in the scheme, the FTA says.

Customers will have access to online driver reports through a dedicated website, enabling managers to produce their own tailor-made reports.  

Licence Bureau also provides customers with same-day alerts for high risk drivers.
