In this way, he knows how long his drivers are still allowed to drive and is also informed in good time of any infringements that may occur.

4mobile driver's license control - low holder adhesion, high safety

4mobile driver's license control - low holder adhesion, high safety

Checking the driving licences of company car drivers is one of the most important duties of the vehicle owner. The legal basis is § 21 StVG. In order to relieve the burden on the fleet manager, the driving licence app takes over the electronic and automatic recording of identity documents.

The check is carried out with the help of an NFC label, which is used to identify the ID document. The unique serial number of the NFC chip ensures protection against forgery, and the label is destroyed and unusable when removed. The entrepreneur enters the personal data in a protected web portal and manages it there. Thanks to the direct transfer of the information into the system, he receives all important information at a glance.

The system automatically reminds the owners by e-mail. If a check is not necessary, it is enough for the employee to hold his driver's license to an NFC-enabled terminal / smartphone with a 4mobile app, which identifies the driver's license and sends the data via the mobile network to the web portal. A scan of one of the installed black boxes is enough for the employee to authenticate. A beep and a light signal confirm the verification. The process is now complete, and the test date is automatically entered in the register.

Core Functions

  • Recording and monitoring of all drivers
  • Regular driver's license checks via NFC scan
  • Reminder function by e-mail to all employees
  • Warning system at expiration of driving license
  • Counterfeit protection thanks to clear NFC assignment
  • Monitoring and reporting to the driving licence holder for expiring driving licence modules (examination 95; ADR ect.)

Your Benefits

  • Reduced administrative overhead through automation
  • No more annoying asking and controlling
  • Forgery-proof by affixing an NFC label to the identity document
  • Easy compliance with legal requirements
  • Driving test possible from different locations (e.g. office, warehouses etc.)
  • Ensuring the modalities of liability

Now you can easily comply with regulatory requirements and reduce your administrative burden.
