Driver Licence Checking Service

This service is available for FTA members only and is designed to minimise the hassle and risk associated with checking whether your drivers are safe and legally compliant to operate your vehicles.

Our Driver Licence Checking Service has been developed in conjunction with Licence Bureau.

What is the service?

FTA's Driver Licence Checking Service has been developed in conjunction with Licence Bureau, the country’s leading provider of secure driver licence checks, to manage this labour-intensive job on your behalf. This ensures your business will be operating legally whilst you immediately profit from time and cost savings.

How does licence checking work?

Our service enables you to quickly perform licence checks for all your drivers against current records, which are continually and automatically re-checked for you.

This system ensures you’re constantly informed of all relevant compliance issues, so you’re in control of managing your drivers, vehicle, fleet, costs and risks.

Members of the service will benefit from access to daily driver reports, which include information on items such as licence status, category detail, details of disqualifications, expiry alerts and more.

We feel secure in the knowledge that FTA’s Driver Licence Checking Service uses live data from the DVLA so that we are notified straight away if there should be any irregularities on any of the drivers’ licence. The FTA service is a great benefit to XL Video as it ensures that we are more compliant and it provides us with peace of mind and the knowledge that licences are more stringently checked.
