Additional online resources will also be provided for any subject you may need additional support on. 1 to 1 live sessions can be arranged with prior agreement at an extra fee.

DVSA Compliance and Record Keeping

If you’re a vehicle operator, your drivers might be stopped at the roadside by the police or the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) for vehicle inspections and it’s more likely that your vehicles will be inspected if your OCRS (Operator Compliance Risk Score) is high.

The DVSA can also visit your site and are likely to do so if you are a new operator, have had a failed roadside inspection, have had degradation in your OCRS or an increase in MOT failures.

If you are at risk of a DVSA visit then it’s crucial to your business to ensure your necessary systems and procedures are in place that DVSA auditors will expect to see; our DVSA compliance consultancy service is there to ensure this is the case. We will make an assessment of your current compliance level and make recommendations of any action needed to improve where necessary to ensure you have the necessary systems.

To find out more and reduce your risk of increased roadside inspections and site visits, call us now on 0121 552 6806.

(OCRS is used to calculate the risk of an operator not following the rules on roadworthiness (the condition of its vehicles) and traffic, eg drivers’ hours, weighing checks.)
