Driver Licence Check
Driver Licence Check (Smartlicence)
TMS Cumbria are pleased to announce that we now have a new Driver Licence Checking service. TMS Cumbria (Smartlicence) gives all new and existing clients peace of mind, that regular and automatic checks are done on their driver's licences.
Checking directly with DVLA and unique in its concept by being linked to driver's hours reporting, this exciting new service is unmatched by any Driver Licence Checking Service currently available.
Keep up to date automatically with alerts on:
* Disqualified drivers
* High risk drivers and any points on their licences
* New offences, even before your drivers tell you
* Licence expiry warnings
* Digital card expiry warnings (HGV & PCV)
* Audits due
We will even pre-warn you of an impending audit together with the drivers to be checked. If a driver has left your employment their audit will be cancelled.
Don't expose yourself or your Company to the risks of work related road incidents, non-insured drivers and ultimately prosecution under the Corporate Manslaughter Act of 2007!
VOSA are now openly endorsing driver licence checking via DVLA and expect all Companies operating vehicles (of any type) to have processes in place to check licences.
TMS Cumbria guarantee this to be the most efficient and most cost effective service currently available in the UK.
Licence Verification is Essential
Licence fraud and honest mistakes are a fact of life
Almost 2 million people move home each year. If a driver has failed to inform the DVLA of a change of address it is possible for their licence to be revoked without them even knowing about it. If DVLA do not have the correct details for a registered driver they may never receive notifications from them about intended prosecutions or changes to their licence status. Up until 2010, a driver had 12 months to return their licence for penalty points to be added. Now a driver has just 28 days to return their licence to DVLA, after which their licence will be revoked, making it illegal for them to drive.
