As Natalie, VVR Product Owner, has previously said, this service will give companies who are on DVLA’s fleet scheme access to information about vehicles in their fleet. They’ll be able to check all the information currently contained on their vehicle registration certificate (V5C). They’ll also be able to view multiple vehicle details. This feature will allow companies to check which vehicles are due to be taxed or MOT’d and they’ll also be able to search using different criteria like vehicle make or model.
My role as project communication manager is to keep you, our stakeholders and commercial customers, up-to-date on progress of the service.
So here goes...
To date, DVLA’s Customer Insight team has consulted with a range of fleet companies to demo the prototype enquiry screens. This ensures that the service will meet the needs of the end user - fleet companies.
We’re taking the service out on the road
Starting in Bracknell, this week will give users the chance to test the service. We’ve scheduled testing events across the country...you may have attended or been invited to participate.
During testing we’ll also want to check if there’s any need for us to provide support and training materials. With this in mind, we’ve emailed all the companies registered on our Fleet scheme asking them to let us know what, if any training requirements they have. A number of options have been provided for consideration. We’ve also asked how many administrators companies think they’ll need to access the system at any given time. As you can see we are getting down to the detail now before we launch public beta around November.
