Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA)
Digitally transforming the driving test process
Learn how we partnered with the DVSA to digitally transform the driving test process, largely
unchanged since 1934. We replaced the heavily manual, paper-based process with a user-centric, fully
automated and cloud-based service that has helped improve delivery, reliability, performance and
efficiency. The new service has been fully embraced by Driver Examiners who were at the heart of the
project from the outset.
We were delighted to have Kainos on board as one of the digital partners for this project. Over the
past 5 years of our partnership they have delivered to the highest of standards and their expertise
in digital transformation and agile ways of working proved invaluable to the success of this

The Pensions Regulator (TPR) is a national body responsible for protecting the UK’s workplace
pensions. They needed to migrate their entire IT estate, consisting of over 300+ servers and 70+
applications, as it was being hosted in a data centre that was due to be decommissioned by a fixed
date. Our goal was to migrate the full IT estate quickly with minimal disruption whilst ensuring that
sensitive data was migrated securely and confidentially. We worked closely with their IT team
throughout the project, transferring knowledge and skills to ensure business continuity following the
migration to Microsoft Azure.
Kainos’ cloud expertise was a guiding reason for us to choose them. Their team brought strong
technical leadership in helping us successfully migrate our entire IT estate safely and securely and
within our deadline.

platform is accessed by Welsh Government civil servants and businesses and is used to provide
information, administer training, manage funding applications (Business Account System - BAS) and host
internal Welsh Government applications. Our goal was to create a fully cloud-based service by
migrating to existing platform to Microsoft Azure. We utilised modern cloud technology to create a
system with greater flexibility, scalability and enhanced security while reducing complexity for the
Kainos’s expertise proved invaluable in the delivery of this project. They helped us to
significantly reduce complexity without compromising the end user experience. We now have a system
that supports the needs of our end users while having the ability to add new applications quickly,
allowing us to respond to changing business needs.
Andrew Hurst Digital, Business Support Manager, Welsh Government
We partnered with the DVSA to create the MOT Testing Service, a fully cloud-based online service, to
support the digital modernisation of the MOT industry. The new service leverages modern IT
infrastructure within MOT garages and removes the cost of operating and supporting the previous
legacy mainframe-based MOT system. Adopting modern cloud technologies has helped reduce MOT fraud,
increased testing quality and efficiency and has helped the DVSA become more agile.
Kainos’s expertise has guided us throughout our journey adopting cloud technologies into our core
business functions of the MOT, driving test and theory test. DVSA rely on cloud technologies to
provide us with the organisational agility to adapt and keep pace with the rapid development of the
Funds-Axis is an investment management regulatory technology software company. Their focus is on simplifying risk, compliance and regulatory reporting challenges for investment managers and depositaries. The goal of this project was to extract key entities from readily available financial documents using Machine Vision and Natural Language Processing (NLP). The initial work was carried out using Key Investor Information Documents (KIIDs).
We approached Kainos with the idea of using AI to automatically extract the information we needed from KIIDs. Kainos’ AI team had fantastic experience with document analysis and NLP and they delivered the project perfectly!
Kainos has collaborated with Skeyos, an independent spin-off of Lufthansa Technik, to create a ground-breaking cloud-based eCommerce solution designed to streamline the purchase and sale of repair services and aircraft components in the aviation business. The highly secure and scalable solution is hosted in a world-class, cloud environment.
By using cloud hosting, Kainos reduced the upfront infrastructure costs and made the creation of this new platform more feasible. The platform, hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS), also has automation features to allow seamless integration with suppliers, enabling a streamlined process and a unique sourcing channel for purchasers, providing suppliers access to a larger pool of potential customers.
We chose to partner with Kainos because of their strengths in UX design, their agile approach and ability to mobilise a team to quickly develop ideas into workable solutions.
Kainos worked with DVSA to pioneer a predictive analytics tool which has revolutionised the process for identifying fraud and inadequate standards. This machine learning (ML) tool enables DVSA to identify abnormal MOT testing behavioural patterns, effectively target enforcement and inspection activities, and ultimately improve Britain’s road safety.
The project, an excellent example of private and public-sector collaboration, highlights the benefits of leveraging ML techniques to achieve substantial business change and organisational strategic objectives; achievements a manual approach would not have accomplished.
DVSA has enjoyed a very collaborative relationship with Kainos. It has been a real partnership. Both DVSA and the garage trade are interested and enthused by our revised risk rating model.
Magellan Health is an American health care company focusing on behavioural health, employee assistance program services and specialty health.

Kainos built a new easy to use customer portal hosted on nidirect.gov.uk with a simplified user choice selection to ensure the correct permits are selected by customers using the online service. Development of a new mobile application by the Kainos team also enables Enforcement Officers within IFG to check a fisherman’s permit simply by taking the license number. This eliminates the need for officers to see paper permits and verify them with back office staff over the phone.
Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust selected Kainos Evolve® to drive digital transformation and improve patient care. Evolve will streamline the workload of clinicians across the Trust by digitising existing paper case notes and medical records, allowing healthcare providers to deliver better patient care. Clinicians will have instant access to accurate, up-to-date case notes at the point of need. They will also be able, where appropriate, to share content securely with other healthcare providers involved in a patient’s care, such as their GP or local hospital consultant.
MOT modernisation project
As part of a wider ICT modernisation programme, DVSA set out a plan to replace the national mainframe-based MOT system with a new online service. This plan had two ambitious objectives: first, it sought to reduce the operational cost of the MOT service by up to 50% and second, it aimed to improve the service provided to testers in garages around the country.
The MOT modernisation project was initiated by DVSA in 2013, and with support from Kainos the solution was delivered on time in September 2015, when the old system was decommissioned. Unlike its predecessor, the new service allows testers to use various devices (including laptops, tablets and desktop PCs and iMacs), and can be updated rapidly to meet business changes. It features a robust, scalable cloud-based infrastructure (one of the first government services on AWS) and is measurably easier to operate. Most of all, it is reducing the costs and improving the service delivered to garages.

Kainos worked with DVLA to build a new digital ‘Exemplar’ service for DVLA that will enable drivers to view their driving records online – finding out what categories of vehicles they can drive, as well as any penalty points or disqualifications they might have. The infrastructure developed for this service can be further extended to provide different enquiry services to other data customers. We built the service in close collaboration with DVLA and GDS, using agile methods and open source technologies resulting in quick, cost effective delivery aligned to user needs.
Kainos developed a web-enabled solution (named Solas) that provides KBC’s staff with immediate access to all the information and documentation necessary to process a mortgage application. Based on Autonomy’s document management product, scanning and workflow technology are combined to facilitate faster data capture and to ensure that each step of the mortgage process is completed on schedule and by the appropriate personnel.
Solas automates most tasks in the process, using extensive business validation and a sophisticated calculations engine. The solution was also required to integrate all of the customer channels (web, phone and branch) and thereby ensure that brokers and customers would experience the same high quality of service through any interface.
This system revolutionises the way we do business, significantly enhancing our service to customers and the broker network, and consolidating KBC’s position in the Irish market place. Kainos’ strong technical capabilities and proven local experience were key factors in our decision to choose them for this project.

Cornell wanted a testing solution that would help them keep their teams focused on the university’s strategic priorities, reduce the effort required to test major updates, and mitigate the risk around weekly Workday updates and security changes.
Since adopting Kainos Smart, Cornell has increased its testing capability by 700% during each major Workday update while simultaneously reducing the hands-on staff required to run those regression tests by 92%. This has saved the university hundreds of hours of manual testing each year (in terms of its original testing capacity) and thousands of hours annually (in terms of its current testing capacity). Importantly, this has freed up valuable staff to address other needs. It has also enabled the HRIS team to provide agile, robust support to implementation, training, and third-party systems teams while continuing to deliver their own Workday optimisation and roadmap efforts.
…as your Workday footprint grows so does your support footprint, and Kainos Smart is one of the tools that you can use to keep that gap as small as possible.
