DVSA earned recognition for vehicle operators

Guidance for vehicle operators, IT suppliers and audit providers about the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) earned recognition scheme.

DVSA earned recognition for vehicle operators is a new way to prove your organisation meets driver and vehicle standards.

You regularly share performance information with DVSA. In return, your vehicles are less likely to be stopped for inspections.

It’s a voluntary scheme that’s designed to work for operators of all sizes.
