Have your say on driver conduct 

On Monday 13 July 2015, the Senior Traffic Commissioner launched a consultation on how commissioners deal with the conduct of professional truck, bus and coach drivers. Whether you're a driver, transport manager or operator, the Senior Traffic Commissioner wants to hear from you.

Having an effective way to report defects should be a key part of your vehicle maintenance regime. It's also a good way to make sure your drivers know which defects to look for. This could include locked emergency exits or missing break-glass hammers on buses and coaches.

Earlier this year, the Senior Traffic Commissioner published revised guidance for operators of local bus services in England (outside London) and Wales. If you've seen the document already, you'll know the punctuality and reliability standards haven't changed.


Continuing your operator licence

Planning ahead – it's something we all like to do well. But sometimes unexpected events, or things we've put to one side, take us by surprise. When it comes to running vehicles, your planner will be full of dates: safety inspections, tax disc renewals, MOTs and countless other entries. 


New load security guidance for vehicle operators

New load security guidance has been published to help vehicle operators transport loads securely. The guidance details your responsibilities, the consequences of not securing your load correctly and how DVSA enforces the rules.


Myth of the moment

Myth - roadworthiness prohibitions can only be removed at DVSA goods vehicle testing stations.
