It wants to ensure an efficient on-line system is in place for businesses to check driver details.
Now it has again reviewed its timetable and told the BVRLA and FTA that the IT checking system will be introduced in June to replace the paper counterpart which carries qualification data for drivers.
The agency has also responded to the BVRLA’s call for a real-time, online driver details checking service to be developed in advance of the abolition by promising ‘technical solutions that provide up-to-date, fit-for-purpose alternatives to the paper counterpart’.
