The Derby-based business, part of the Ebbon Group, recorded a total of 851,092 licence checks through its award-winning DAVIS (Driver and Vehicle Information Solution) platform between April 2021 and March this year, the highest of any licence checking business in the UK and a 28% increase over the previous year.

The results for the 2021/22 financial year also included a record single month when, in March this year, Licence Check carried out more than 87,270 licence checks through DAVIS – a new high for a single month and up 32% compared with the same month last year.

Managing director, Keith Allen, said: ‘Following the release of financial year figures from the DVLA, we can now confirm we have achieved the number one spot in the UK licence checking arena for the first time, having processed more licence checks than any other provider in three of the four quarters in the last financial year.

‘This is brilliant news and a fitting reward for the huge amount of work carried out by our highly talented team, following continuous growth over the last three to five years. We fully intend to maintain our number one position over the coming year, with a host of new developments already in the pipeline and time-lined for release in the final quarter of this year.

‘It was always our intention to enhance the overall fleet functionality and services available through DAVIS, which is currently the market leading portal for managing driver and risk compliance. We are now looking to provide a comprehensive fleet operating platform to provide fleet operators insight into delivering safe, efficient and sustainable fleet solutions and policy compliance.’

Since 2015, Licence Check has carried out more than 3.5 million licence checks and has more than 477k active drivers on the DAVIS platform.
