The Government’s “Digital Transformation” and driving licences…

Francis Maude’s announcement about the digitalisation of people’s driving licence records is good news. It forms part of the Government’s move to cut bureaucracy and drive down the cost of the Civil Service. According to his statement, as of this June it will become possible to view driving licence records online. This will provide insurance companies with an accurate account of customers’ licence details and any penalties which might possibly drive down the cost of insurance premiums too. There are 24 other areas of the Government’s “Digital Transformation” which are being considered and these include electoral registration, claiming for carers’ allowance, digital tax self assessment plus many more which are in various stages of being rolled out. Applications for Student Finance have already been digitalised. I look forward to the introduction of digitalisation so that people’s lives are improved and money is saved.
