Fonix DLC (Drivers Licence Checking) feature

The Fonix DLC (Drivers Licence Checking) feature allows companies to automatically carry out digital checks on UK driving licences. The system will also check the drivers CPC information & Tacho Card Information if available. This feature has been specifically designed to ensure your drivers have the right credentials to legally drive on behalf of your company. The Fonix DLC will improve company efficiencies and demonstrates exemplary levels of driver compliance in HSE ‘duty of care’.

How Does it work?

Fonix have a direct link to the DVLA for our licence checking service enabling you to check your employees licences in a click of a button.

Once the drivers licence details have been entered in the DLC, the system will send out an e-consent request email directly to the driver. This consent allows the company to carry out checks on the driver’s licence for 3 years, meaning you can recheck a licence at any point during that period without having to regain consent from the driver. Once you have set the Automatic Check Frequency within the admin panel, the Fonix DLC will automatically set up a recheck schedule which then runs in the background giving you full automation and peace of mind. Individual or Summary reports can be sent through on a daily, weekly or monthly basis
