Visa to Drive contains a comprehensive suite of solutions to assist you with meeting your duty of care obligations.
Visa to Drive handles the entire end-to-end process of checking driving licences. Replacing cumbersome paper based administration, Visa to Drive makes use of a highly secure web based portal and an instant licence check to verify individuals’ driving licence details, directly from the DVLA .
All for just £2.50 per check, with no added fees.
Here’s how it works
1.You provide us with the details of every driver that requires a driving licence check.
2. All drivers will be asked to complete the DVLA Declaration online that requests their consent for the driving licence check and requests their full name, address, date of birth and driving licence number. This consent is valid until the employee ceases to drive in connection with the company, or in any case, three years after the date of their consent. Employees can also withdraw their consent at any time.
3. Any failure to complete the declaration is reported back to you. Mileage capture users will not be able to make mileage claims until they have consented to the licence check, adding a further incentive.
4. All signed mandates are verified by the DVLA which are then valid for 3 years.
5. The DVLA licence check takes seconds to return once the driver completes the declaration.
High risk drivers will be highlighted to enable you to schedule more frequent checks for drivers with endorsements. Helping you to reduce your exposure to risk by ensuring that every driver is licenced to drive at all times
If you operate a grey fleet it’s essential that your drivers have business class insurance when driving their own vehicles for work purposes. With Visa to Drive you can be sure that you will never have a driver on the road without the correct policy. Upon renewal drivers are required to upload their insurance details to TMC’s online system which are then verified by one of TMC’s expert auditors. Should an employee fail to submit their policy on time TMC will chase them directly and let you know that the driver has breached your fleet policy.
Ensuring grey fleet vehicles are road worthy is an essential part of duty of care compliance. Should a driver have an accident and it is discovered that the vehicle did not hold a valid MOT certificate or had not been serviced in line with manufacturer’s guidelines then it could expose you to a Health and Safety investigation which may result in fines and prosecutions. Visa to Drive will give you the confidence that every vehicle within your fleet is road worthy. Once drivers upload their MOT certificates onto the TMC system they will be checked and verified to ensure the vehicle is legally allowed on the road.
A key element of duty of care is to ensure that all vehicles, whether company owned or grey fleet, are safe to drive at all times. Visa to Drive will provide you with an auditable record that every vehicle within your fleet has been subjected to regular safety checks. At intervals specified by your fleet policy, drivers will be required to log onto the TMC system and complete a declaration. The system can also be set up to store your fleet policy and request that drivers tick to confirm they have read it.
