DVLA takes home top digital prize
For the second year in a row DVLA has been awarded one of the top accolades at the Digital Leaders DL100 Awards.
The category for Digital Public Service Innovation of the Year recognises a public sector product or service that has shown an innovative approach and has seen measurable impact and outcomes.
Last night (Thursday 22 June) DVLA won the category for their online medical service.
This service allows drivers to tell DVLA online about a health or medical condition that could affect their ability to drive. Drivers can now report more than 200 single conditions such as vision, diabetes, and epilepsy by using the service, helping to reduce the processing times for licensing decision for those driving with a medical condition.
This is the second year that DVLA has taken home the title of Digital Public Service Innovation of the Year at these awards. Last year the agency received the award for its Share Driving Licence service which allows customers to share their details easily and safely.
DVLA, which has some of the government’s flagship digital services, is aiming to become a hub for digital motoring, creating online services for customers that make things simpler, better and safer.
Oliver Morley, DVLA Chief Executive, said,
“I am tremendously proud of the work done across DVLA to provide more choice for our customers. To take home one of the top awards at Digital Leaders DL100 is a significant achievement and recognises the innovative approach we take to deliver new and improved services.
“We’ve made significant progress in developing digital services in recent years and I look forward to the opportunities ahead of us.”
