If you have a Restricted Licence, transport may be secondary to your
main business and you may not be obliged to employ a qualified transport
manager but you may value the support of an experienced consultant to ensure that your
business is compliant while you get on with the running of your core business.
You may have been contacted by VOSA or the Traffic Commissioner as a result of
a roadside check and are unsure what to do. Or, worse still, one of your
drivers may actually have broken some regulations.
To protect your business and the ability to operate vehicles, ongoing support
and advice is recommended by the authorities even though it is not mandatory.
We can help.
If you, or your business, holds an Operators Licence then you should be
aware that a great deal of responsibility comes with it. If you cannot
demonstrate that you are compliant with the undertaking you have signed up for,
you could be called before the Traffic Commissioner and penalized heavily or
worse - lose your licence to operate. You may find this blog from the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency helpful.
Are you confident that you are operating legally and are completely
compliant? Or are you just dreading that inevitable visit from a DVSA
We can provide a detailed audit of your systems and processes and help
you to ensure that your business is completely legitimate. By
taking steps yourself, you are also demonstrating to DVSA that you WANT to be
the best you possibly can.
There are many other reasons why a vehicle
operator might wish to obtain independent assistance from an external adviser. Often,
with a very small fleet, it is not economically viable or necessary to employ a
permanent transport manager but for a fraction of the cost, you can engage an
external adviser on a monthly retainer and have peace of mind knowing that help
is only a phone call away.
