Truck Excellence

Proud of your fleet compliance? Gain the recognition you deserve...

Truck Excellence is designed by the industry for the industry and provides operators with a peace of mind in the legal compliance of their truck fleet.

Aligned to DVSA Earned Recognition audit standards, Truck Excellence provides operators with a route to assessing their systems and processes against the new industry standards introduced by DVSA. The audit consists of 9 sections covering on the operator’s licence, vehicle standards, drivers’ hours and driver and operational management.

Recognised by DVSA, satisfactory Truck Excellence audits can be used by operators when submitting an application to DVSA to join the Earned Recognition scheme. With DVSA only requiring Earned Recognition audits very two years, operators holding Truck Excellence can also benefit by using the annual Truck Excellence audit as a mid-point check of their systems and compliance.
