Licence Check’s Terry Hiles has been elected to the role of chairperson at the Association for Driving Licence Verification (ADLV), following the retirement of founding chair Malcolm Maycock.
Hiles, the ADLV’s former deputy and general manager DAVIS at Licence Check, is joined by Licence Bureau sales director Steve Pinchen as the association’s new deputy chair. Driving Monitor managing director Kevin Curtis remains as technical director, while DriveTech’s Colin Paterson continues as secretary and head of marketing.
Commenting on his appointment, Terry Hiles said: “Many thanks to Malcolm for his sterling efforts over the first six years! Since our inception, we have grown significantly and are now in extremely fine shape to face the future confidently as a cohesive and well-respected fleet trade association. We wish Malcolm well for the future.
“It’s an interesting time to take over the role of ADLV chair. With the current measures to mitigate the effects of the pandemic on drivers and vehicles directly affecting our members’ services and a looming Brexit deadline, our respective customers need us more than ever.”
Post-Brexit changes will see the ADLV add to its range of datasets and checking services, while also ensuring continued support for those fleets requiring new permits for driving in the EU.
Commenting on Terry Hiles’ new role, Colin Paterson, secretary & marketing head of the ADLV, said: “I congratulate Terry on his appointment and welcome the forensic vision he brings to the association. The awareness of the ADLV has already grown immensely. Fleets keen to ‘know their drivers’ have found us to be a valuable ally in preventing the consequences of failing to maintain good driver data. Looking forward, we are working hard to build this awareness further and in addition hope to launch a number of new fleet datasets and services over the coming year.”
