press release

The online portal Drivelog-a Bosch subsidiary based in Berlin-has signed a collaboration agreement that extends its range of workshops in Germany to include services from TÜV Rheinland testing centers and those of the testing service provider's partner workshops. This arrangement will allow Drivelog users to find out which of the 140 TÜV Rheinland test centers across Germany has appointments available for general vehicle inspections in their area. If desired, users can book an appointment directly.

Under this cooperation agreement, Drivelog and TÜV Rheinland will also be developing automotive information and online tools.
“Our partnership with TÜV Rheinland allows us to develop additional services and innovative ideas that will provide Drivelog users with an even higher level of quality and safety,” says Florian Bankoley, Managing Director of Bosch subsidiary Mobility Media GmbH, which runs the free online portal Drivelog. “This will help to develop our driver portal into an online tool that will accompany Drivelog users' vehicles throughout their service life.”
In addition to vehicle evaluation, there are plans to develop such features as special online vehicle certification. Drivers who record their mileage and service appointments in the digital service log on drivelog.de, or who allow their workshop to do so, can have these entries certified by TÜV Rheinland. This provides Drivelog users with a seal of quality that offers them actual benefits when, for example, reselling their vehicles. Users can also access selected TÜV Rheinland services via the online portal, including used car inspections or reports for accidental damage.

Access Typical Defects for any Vehicle
In the near future, TÜV Rheinland will provide Drivelog users with information about the typical defects and weaknesses for their respective vehicles. This data will be provided in the Drivelog portal so that users can assess the problems they may have to face, depending on the age and mileage of their vehicles.

Drivelog Displays All Vehicle Costs at a Glance
The Drivelog online portal allows drivers to maintain a constant overview of all costs, key data and other information relating to their cars. Accessed at www.drivelog.de, the portal offers a cost-monitoring function and a digital service log. It can locate the nearest vehicle workshop and cheapest gas station, and offers a range of eCommerce options, such as a tire shop. Drivelog is the first service portal to combine mobility services for both drivers and workshops. TÜV Rheinland recently undertook a comprehensive review of how user-friendly the online portal www.drivelog.de is with the TÜV Rheinland “website check” function and awarded it accordingly.
