“The investment includes the development and roll-out of dhOps X, Driver Hire’s new core operations system,” says Chris Chidley, Driver Hire’s Chief executive. “We’ve also invested substantially in developing dh Licence Check, the online driving licence verification service, and a set of eLearning modules for commercial drivers.
