DVSA ‘Earned Recognition Project’Back


The DVSA (VOSA) are of the belief that certain truck operators run their business fleets and drivers to such a high standard that there seems little point in carrying road-side stops and inspections. To date we have the OCRS (Operator Compliance Risk Score), but the DVSA believe that there should be a higher system that means they have open access to records, procedures and maintenance programmes that would allow them to be reassured these standards are being upheld.

To this end the DVSA have commissioned exploratory meetings with ourselves, RHA, FTA, BVRLA and many of the blue-chip operators to explore the possible opportunities. The first meeting was in November and the NFDA/CV team sees this as a great opportunity for franchised dealers to use the locked in ‘Repair & Maintenance’ contracts to be one of the pre-requisites of being and ‘Earned Recognition Operator’, we will advise if this proposal goes further.
