How to avoid losing your 'O’ Licence

Many operators struggle within maintaining compliance because they aren’t 100% sure exactly what they need to do to comply with their undertakings. Often overlooked but critically important is the health of your Operator Licence systems, procedures and paperwork. ​ Not being compliant can have serious consequences and failure to have the correct systems and documentations in place can put your Operators licence at risk. ​ Our aim is to help operators maintain compliance at all times. ​ Our course helps operator licences holders on restricted, standard national and international licences learn how to carry out a compliance audit on their company so they can maintain compliance across their organisation. ​ Our course has been designed for an operator licence holder or an appointed employee to successfully carry out a full compliance audit on the transport side of your business. The course is to be completed alongside the self-audit template which is included within this course. ​ This course will guide you through completing a self-audit on your company and producing a full audit report. ​ Our self-audit is designed to cover the areas the traffic commissioner focuses on and will make you aware of any areas that need improvement within your company to ensure that you are complying with legislation and the 11 undertakings of the operator’s licence. ​ It is recommended that transport companies carry out an audit on their business on an annual basis regardless if you run on a restricted or standard national operator licence. ​ This course is suitable for those wishing to monitor their own business and ensure compliance.
