DVSA earned recognition
DVSA earned recognition for vehicle operators is a new way to prove you meet driver and vehicle standards. You regularly share performance information with DVSA. In return, your vehicles are less likely to be stopped for inspections.
It’s a voluntary scheme that’s designed to work for operators of all sizes. DVSA are looking for operators with a track record of compliance to join the pilot.
If you join now, they'll give you more help to get through the process. This level of support won't be available later, so take advantage of it now.
They've published a new guide about how to join the pilot of DVSA earned recognition for vehicle operators. It tells you everything you need to know to get started.
When you successfully complete the pilot you’ll get automatic entry to the DVSA earned recognition scheme. This will give you the full benefits, such as being:
- an exemplary operator, and being able to prove this when you bid for contracts
- recognised as a DVSA-approved operator on a list on GOV.UK
- less likely to have your vehicles stopped at the roadside for inspections, saving you time and money
- less likely to have DVSA enforcement staff visit your premises
