As anticipated, it appears that the Texas Driver Monitoring Service (DRMS) is on track to launch by early 2017, according to what we are being told by the state. The program will enable both employers and insurers to monitor driving records of Texas-licensed employees and insured drivers for adverse activity, such as a driver’s license status change or a new moving violation.
Late last year, Texas selected iiX to participate in a pilot of its DRMS program. iiX will offer the monitoring service for employers through the iiX DriverAdvisor® Monitoring program, which can help employers take fast action, in accordance with their driver safety rules, when adverse driving activity is identified. For insurers, the program is offered through the Verisk Insurance Solutions™ Driver Monitoring service. This program helps reduce risk by providing midterm warnings about serious motor vehicle violations or suspensions.
We will provide continuous updates on this blog site and other iiX communication channels as Texas moves closer to its DRMS launch date.
