Fleet software specialist FleetCheck has been asked to take part in a DVSA pilot scheme that could transform how businesses approach fleet compliance.
Called “Earned Recognition”, it provides commercial vehicle fleets who can prove good compliance track records with the possibility of reducing the number of inspections they undergo plus a range of other benefits.
The DVSA is currently working with a handful of industry companies to trial the initiative – and FleetCheck has been asked to recruit fleets from within its customer base.
Peter Golding, managing director at FleetCheck, said, “This is a quite a significant development and one that could have a genuine operational impact on the way commercial vehicles fleets handle compliance.
“Fundamentally, the thinking is that the DVSA will move its inspection resources away from fleets that it knows to have a strong safety culture and, instead, target those that represent a likely safety risk much more closely.
