Fleet News reports that DVLA plans to introduce an online licence checking service have been put on ice. The idea was that fleet managers would be able to check drivers’ licences with the DVLA via a third-party portal.

The plug is reported to have been pulled on trials with a number of licence checking companies and the DVLA is in no hurry to announce a new launch date or even fresh trials.

A DVLA spokesperson told Fleet News that: “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.”

    What our clients say about us

    Jo was friendly while still professional. She answered any questions and was patient and happy to help. Next steps and cover confirmation could have been a bit clearer. I've had calls from credit hire that I was expecting for replacement bike but they were pushing to do repairs. I was told this would be done by an approved repair. I called just after 9am to notify a claim and was told I would receive a call back within 10 to 15mins. I had to call back an hour later as no one had called back. The lady who answered, Jo, did deal with things straight away and was very helpful
