Restricted Operator Licence

What will you LEARN?

Restricted Operators are given a bit of a rough deal! Whilst holders of other Operator Licences have a Transport Manager to prove they have somebody with ‘Professional Competence’ you are left to go it alone, to fend for yourself. You only find out you are doing something wrong when DVSA get involved and tell you, when it is quite often too late, the damage is done.

Fight back and level the playing field. With our Compliance Package, you get access to the information you need to allow you to show that you are professionally competent. Learn what you should be doing and how, so you can remain one step ahead. Prove that, despite the system being stacked against you, that you have the tools at your fingertips to run a compliant operation and keep DVSA and the Traffic Commissioner off your back. Best of all, show that you have obtained Professional Competence, before the Traffic Commissioner asks you to, with 12 months of access to our online professional competence for restricted operators training course, for which you will receive a Certification of Completion when you have finished it.

As a bonus, we will also give you an audit template that you can use to assess and monitor your business to ensure that you are remaining compliant. Plus, free of charge, we will give you access to 21 compliance policy templates that you can adapt and personalise for your own use… complaints, health and safety, road risk, tyres, roadworthiness, transport infringements … the list goes on.

That alone will save you hours of hard work and most importantly, a few thousand pounds if you needed to have them written for you.
