DVLA to supply tacho data

,

The DVLA has agreed to supply tachograph and CPC Data to the haulage industry.

The data will be made available in the New Year, alongside driving licence data already available through the Association for Driving Licence Verification.

Earlier this year the ADLV surveyed 100 UK haulage fleet managers and found that 91 per cent of management respondents wanted CPC & Tacho data to be available alongside existing online driving licence checks. 90 per cent also felt that the availability of the data could make their own monitoring of driver entitlement easier and improve support for existing HR systems.

Richard Brown, managing director of Licence Check, an ADLV member, said: “The upcoming release of tacho and CPC data by the DVLA now is a testament to the DVLA’s ability to listen to the industry and to respond. For that they should be greatly commended.”
