DVLA Postpones Online Licence Checking Plans

June 14, 2009

The DVLA was planning to have an electronic licence checking system running by 2010, but these plans will not now go ahead.

            ” The introduction of the online Driver Licence Check service has been postponed, but the Agency continues to operate a range of alternative products for the checking of driver entitlement through telephone, paper and electronic channels,” confirmed a DVLA spokesman.

            “DVLA takes its responsibility as a custodian of the public purse seriously and has had to reduce expenditure by reprioritising its development plans to focus on business critical initiatives. As a result a number of initiatives have had to be postponed”

            Fleet software firm Jaama claims to have seen unprecedented demand for its licence checking service since the DVLA shelved its plans.

            “With 43 million drivers using UK roads and 400,000 without a valid driving licence, there are concerns that many employers could be unaware of the risks posed by at-work drivers because of their failure to declare licence validity or how many points they have,” said a  Jaama spokesman. “As a result, DVLA checks are viewed as an occupational road risk management essential by safety experts”
