Online vehicle record trials start
06 February 2015
The DVLA has started private testing of its free online View Vehicle Record service with 12 UK fleets, including Tusker Direct.
The online service provides alerts when vehicles need taxing in the coming month, when MoTs are due for renewal for particular vehicles, and for when a vehicle reaches a certain age.
Fleets can search through their fleet details based on individual vehicles or on a group and can be drilled down as far as the chassis number.
Once private testing is complete, the service will transition into an open public testing phase, before being launched fully in the spring, although only fleets with over 50 vehicles are eligible.
Businesses must sign up in order to use the service and submit all vehicle information from their fleet to the DVLA.
VVR gives fleet operators the ability to view details on all vehicles within their fleet via a login process.
The launch forms part of the DVLA's move to digitise its services.
