DVLA improving services for professional drivers

Published: 22/08/2017

DVLA improving services for professional drivers

Fleet owners and their drivers should be aware of important and useful updates to the DVLA's online services for professional drivers.

The DVLA has reported “significant new features” to their View Driving Licence, Check Driving Licence and Access to Driver Data (ADD) API online facilities.

What this means is

Drivers with a digital tachograph card or driver qualification card can now view this information online and if they need to – share this information via a check code, or by giving consent to use the ADD service.

New Data

Tachograph card users can view such things as:

  • Card status – e.g. valid, expired, lost.
  • Card start and end dates
  • Latest card number

Drivers who have a qualification card (Certificate of Professional Competence) can view the type of vehicle that they've completed training in, and the card expiry date.

For drivers where the DVLA holds tachograph or driver qualification card data – they can now log on at any time to view their data and share it with their employer.

Having this level of detail online means quicker and easier checks for driving entitlements and compliance. The DVLA states that this service plays an important part to improving road safety, which is central to their remit.

It is our understanding that developments to this service are ongoing and the DVLA will continue to research and enhance their digital offering.
