Vehicle security checklist: road transport companies and drivers

Use this checklist to help secure your vehicle to stop people using it to enter the UK illegally.



Secure your vehicle, check it and keep a record to prevent clandestine entrants.

All road hauliers (including drivers) travelling to the UK must operate an effective system to prevent people using their vehicles to enter the UK illegally.

A clandestine entrant is a person who hides in or on a vehicle to avoid going through UK border control.
