Regular checks help swerve fleet management pitfalls

Darran Harris CheckedSafe

When it comes to the transport industry, ever-changing legislation updates and DVSA regulations can be a real minefield for businesses of all sizes.

If you’ve found yourself with a headache when it comes to managing your fleet effectively, you’re certainly not alone and we have tips for you:

Preventative Maintenance Inspections (PMIs)

Managing commercial fleets comes with the legal responsibility of conducting regular PMIs to ensure vehicle safety and roadworthiness.

The frequency of these depends on the vehicle type, but failure to comply will land you in hot water with the DVSA - and isn’t worth the risk!

Verifying driver licences

When was the last time you ensured your commercial drivers had a clean driving record? The DVLA recommends checking driver’s licences at least every three months.

This is often a cumbersome process for businesses with dispersed workforces or large numbers of staff.

Carry out daily walk-around checks

Daily walk-around checks before the start of each journey are a legal requirement for all HGV drivers. Records of each daily check must be stored for up to 15 months and be available to the DVSA upon request. This is a lot of paperwork to store and could be easier managed by going electronic.

Are you intrigued and looking for cutting-edge and innovative commercial fleet management solutions?

CheckedSafe is the UK’s leading vehicle compliance and fleet management provider - and we’ve created a cutting-edge system to manage your fleet and ensure you’re meeting legislative requirements.
