Safety in the vehicle fleet starts with a valid driver’s license. According to the legal regulations governing respondeat superior, the person responsible for the fleet is required to ensure all company car drivers are in possession of one. To this end, license checks must be conducted regularly, the data stored securely and drivers are reminded of upcoming license checks.
The fleet decision-maker is responsible for implementation and coordination of the license check – this translates to huge expenditure of time, money and often complicated documentation, especially when it comes to large fleets. Digital solutions like our app for electronic driver’s license check offer legal certainty while reducing fleet costs.

According to the Road Traffic Act, vehicle owners are required to be in possession of a valid driver’s license when operating a vehicle. Fleet managers and responsible personnel are required to carry out regular checks on their company car drivers’ licenses. Failure to do so may result in criminal penalties.
Manual checks are time consuming and organizationally intensive, and impracticable for decentralized fleets. Electronic checks can be done anytime anywhere.
NFC tags are electronic chips capable of transmitting data. NFC is an internationally recognized standard and enables short distance (within the span of a few centimeters) wireless data exchange. With an NFC tag you can transfer data, activate or deactivate certain functions. For electronic license check, an NFC tag is attached to the driver’s license which can then be used to initialize data and driver’s license check.
The driver should immediately report a damaged NFC tag to the person in charge of the fleet. A tag that is defective does not allow data to be read, thus compromising the license check.
