Chevin in the Driver's Seat

Bondholder Chevin Fleet Solutions is set to provide support to the Driving & Vehicle Standards Agency’s (DVSA) new ‘Earned Recognition’ pilot scheme. 

Chevin’s advanced reporting system FleetWave® will be used to automate reporting processes for the new DVSA Scheme.

Ashley Sowerby, Chevin Managing Director, said: “The Earned Recognition scheme has the potential to be game-changing, because it will allow the DVSA to concentrate its resources on the areas of concern within the commercial vehicle sector, while still being satisfied that excellently-run fleets continue to operate to a high standard, and then letting them get on with their business.

“But for that to happen, the DVSA need well-presented, very accurate, complete records and verifiable data, and through our award-winning FleetWave solution and the mobile app which allows fleets to complete vehicle inspections which are downloaded straight into the system, we are delighted to work with them to provide that.

“As a result, we have been speaking to a number of our clients – some of them very large, very well-known brands – about joining the scheme. This is a partnership between all stakeholders that will be for the good of the industry as a whole in recognising best practice, streamlining inspection, saving money for businesses and significantly improving fleet vehicle off-road time.”
