Fleet Licence Check | Driving Licence Checking and Validation

Fleet Licence Check provides a professional and managed driving licence checking service to businesses both large and small. We offer a number of service levels, depending on the exact requirements of each customer and the number of driving licences to be checked.

With friendly and knowledgeable staff, we are able to guide and assist you to ensure you remain compliant with current legislation, as well as having peace of mind that your drivers are licensed to drive.

Fleet Licence Check is a member of the Association for Driving Licence Verification (ADLV). Made up of former Electronic Driver Entitlement Checking Service (EDECS) members, established to promote and encourage best practice within the licence checking industry. As a result of this, we can display the approved operator logo.

We have a direct and secure tunnel link to the DVLA and are able to directly interrogate the DVLA’s database. Previously, the licence checking service required a signed D796 paper mandate giving us consent to check the driver’s licence with the result of the enquiry available the next day. An upgrade to the service means we are now able to prove a real-time result and allow your drivers to provide consent electronically for their licence to be validated. This ensures a quicker licence result, with the process for obtaining consent simpler for all parties.

Fleet Licence Check performs a DVLA validation on the submitted driving licence and other key data (such as date of birth and home address). This means that you, as an employer or business manager, have taken all reasonable steps to establish that the person’s licence is indeed genuine.

A licence check will reveal the following information about a licence:
- Points
- Convictions/ Endorsements
- Expired photocards (10 year renewal)
- Category entitlement
- Expired/revoked licences
- Serious offences such as drink driving
- Address mismatch
