Telematics Pro can provide and manage Driving Licence checking via the DVLA, using our strategic partner, Licence Check. Permission to access records is granted by the driver through signature of a Driver Mandate which remains valid for a period of three years (subject to the driver remaining in your employ during that period), with a minimum of one licence check per year. All licence information can be viewed through the management portal, a highly secure online management system.
We recommend the following set up regards re-checking of licences:
Drivers with 0 - 3 points - annual check
Drivers with 4 - 7 points - 6 month check
Drivers with 8+ points - 3 month check
Where there is a sudden concern, additional checks can be requested outside of this schedule
Please note non-EU drivers will be required to take a UK driving test (both written and practical) upon 12 months of being in the UK as their country of origin license will no longer be valid. The current average lead time for UK Driving Test application is 3 months.
EU drivers are able to drive using their country of origin licence, however we are unable to include them with the electronic licence check process as no records are held at DVLA and we are unable to check via their country of origin.
