The DVSA earned recognition for vehicle operators is a new way to prove your fleet organisation meets driver and vehicle standards. The scheme is designed to share performance information with DVSA and in return, your vehicles are less likely to be stopped for roadside inspections. Roadside checks typically impact on business efficiency because they inevitably result in delays and in some instances subsequent fines.
Switching to digital fleet management is the first step on the earned recognition journey, and operators that comply with KPI requirements will reduce these time-consuming inspections.
Operators that use the AssetWorks FleetFocus web-based fleet management technology to record walk-around inspection checks, logging defects, servicing and MoT information will be able to provide that information directly to DVSA and in accordance with the scheme requirements. This information recorded by transport managers will demonstrate to the DVSA that fleets are practising robust and timely compliance methods.
AssetWorks supports the DVSA programme, and are happy to be listed as an approved fleet management vendor.
