Wirral Tachograph Ltd launches e-consent for SmartLicence to speed up the process for checking driving licences.

Gaining consent from a driver to allow licence checking is now a quick and simple 2-step electronic process with SmartLicence.

Since the abolition of the paper driving licence paper counterpart in June 2015 driving licence details must be verified against the DVLA database. In order to access a driver’s licence details using a commercial licence verification service such as SmartLicence, a D796 Mandate form needed to be signed by the driver. Getting paper forms signed can introduce significant delays in initiating the licence checks.

Smartanalysis customers using SmartLicence can improve the speed and accuracy of paper mandates with pre-filled forms which can be obtained by using the new Driver Licence D796 Driver Mandate report.

However, to make the whole process much quicker and easier, users of the SmartLicence service can take advantage of a new e-Consent feature to provide consent by the driver electronically. Consent for licence checks in accordance with the requirements of the DVLA can be done in a matter of minutes using e-Consent.

The D796 Driver Mandate Reporting and e-Consent is now live on our system.
