DVSA earned recognition

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

DVSA earned recognition is a new way for organisations with lorries, buses and coaches to prove they meet driver and vehicle standards.

They’ll regularly share performance information with DVSA. In return, their vehicles are less likely to be stopped for roadside inspections.
