Meet the requirements for DVSA Earned Recognition

Road Skills Online gives you all the tools you need to satisfy section 8.2 of the DVSA Earned Recognition scheme, delivering a consistent standard of Professional Development to all of your drivers while keeping a documented record of their progress at the same time.

What is Earned Recognition?

Earned Recognition is an accreditation scheme from the DVSA that recognises operators who meet driver and vehicle standards. As part of the scheme, you’re required to provide regular performance information such as consistent training standards and behaviour records for the DVSA Earned Recognition audit and in return, you’re less likely to be stopped for inspections. 


Section 8.2

Section 8.2 of Earned Recognition states that you should deliver regular Toolbox Talks at a consistent standard to your drivers, maintaining accurate records and evidence of any training that takes place. But bearing in mind that they’re always on the move, how can you pin them down for a regular consistent chat?


Our Professional Development Plan is recognised by the DVSA as an effective road safety product

Created by industry experts, our Drivers’ Professional Development plan is a big tick in the box for section 8.2 of Earned Recognition, alongside providing numerous benefits to you as a company, the driver and the public.
