June launch expected for Texas Driver Record Monitoring Service

It appears all systems are go for the Texas Driver Record Monitoring Service (DRMS) to launch in June, according to state sources.

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.

As a participant in the Texas DRMS pilot, iiX will offer the monitoring service for employers through the iiX DriverAdvisor® Monitoring program. This solution 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’ll provide updates on this blog site and through other iiX communication channels as Texas moves closer to its anticipated June DRMS launch date.
