Meet your O Licence obligations

A crucial part of O Licence compliance is ensuring that the “laws relating to the driving and operation of vehicles used under the licence are observed.” Failure to do so is a criminal offence (GV79 Section 16). Put simply you must ensure that your drivers comply with the various laws and regulations relating to driving and driving at work. But how can you do that when you only see them a couple of times a week? By regular and consistent professional development.

Which laws apply to your drivers?

It would be fair to say that your drivers have their work cut out keeping up to date with all of the legislation relating to driving at work. Here are just a few of the applicable laws they need to follow:

  • Highway Code - Department for Transport
  • Health and safety in road haulage - HSE
  • Road Traffic Act - Department for Transport
  • Driving at work - HSE
  • Senior Traffic Commissioner's statutory guidance and statutory directions

Our Drivers’ Professional Development Plan (PDP)

Our PDP has been developed by industry experts to provide your drivers with timely reminders of the law and their responsibilities on the road. By introducing a programme of regular Toolbox Talks, you’re ensuring that you’re keeping your side of the bargain and doing your best, as is expected of you under the O Licence, to help your drivers work within the laws.

Prove you’ve trained your drivers

When an incident occurs or you face a Public Inquiry, having evidence that you’ve done your bit to educate your drivers is vital. Once a year Driver CPC simply isn’t enough, you need to demonstrate continued professional development. The Company Dashboard in Road Skills Online gives you an instant overview of your drivers’ progress which you can easily use as evidence of your efforts to comply with the law.
