EBBON Group has bought licence checking specialist DriverCheck, bringing it under the firm’s umbrella to line-up alongside Licence Check and positioning the group as a leader in the UK fleet driver compliance market.
Combined, DriverCheck and Licence Check have more than 3,500 customers responsible for half a million vehicles, and perform more than 1.1 million licence checks a year.
Although coming under the Ebbon Group banner, Glasgow-based DriverCheck will continue to be operated as a stand-alone company, with a separate team and brand. There will however be investment in the newly acquired business, the Group promised.
While Licence Check offers customers a self-service product, DriverCheck provides a managed service, which includes paperless driver licence checking from the DVLA’s web portal, allowing access to driving licence information from the UK and abroad, CPC and tachograph data.
We have acquired DriverCheck to grow our fleet market compliance capability, but will continue to operate Licence Check and DriverCheck as separate, stand-alone brands with their own individual identities. We will invest heavily on both with the latest technology to enhance the customer offering.Robert Pilkington, director, Ebbon Group
