Licence Check is launching a new smartphone app to make it easier for drivers to upload their licence details for a check.
The app ties into the company's Davis platform and will be available at no extra cost for existing customers from 28 January.
Drivers can scan their photocard driving licence using their smartphone's camera, which allows the app to automatically create a record on the Davis platform, minimising manual data entry.
The driver then receives a pin code which they can use to authorise an automatic licence check against the DVLA database.
The app gives drivers immediate access to their own permissions and risk information, while for fleet managers, it includes an option for a 'quick check' to allow them to quickly find out whether a driver is high-risk or has been disqualified from driving.
A further feature of the app is a calling and messaging service. This removes the need to store driver phone numbers in a mobile phone. Users can simply tap 'call driver' and be connected instantly.
Terry Hiles, general manager at Licence Check, said: "Positive feedback for our new app was that it offered an innovative and extremely quick way to check drivers' licences in the field, and for drivers that report to a single location, it offered a much more convenient and instant check.
"Both clients and prospects have been impressed by the app's flexibility and the fact that it allows drivers' licences to be quickly checked anytime, anywhere both inside and outside office hours and within an office environment or remotely."
