In events to be held in London and Bristol next month in collaboration with the Local Digital Coalition, the bodies will look at improving services using GOV.UK Verify and the DVLA’s platform services.

The events will map how local authorities currently administer parking permits and taxi licensing services, both offline and online, from end to end.

The group wants to understand how councils collect application information, what is the minimum amount of data that is needed to complete the transaction and the average time and cost of the process.

It will also look at what would be needed for an end-to-end digital service and identify what government should do next to improve these services, for instance through a pilot.

All public sector employees can attend the events, which will be held on 15 July in London and 27 July in Bristol.
