Managing Your Operator's Licence
FORS are facilitating further Operator Licence awareness training, specifically intended for operators who hold restricted licences and manage commercial fleets.
The course provides a quality overview of the operator licencing system and would be useful as a refresher course for Standard Operator Licence holders or as an introduction for new Transport Managers. The syllabus is designed to increase awareness of the compliance requirements when running a commercial HGV fleet and will help to prevent potential infringements, which can lead to prosecution or action taken to curtail, suspend or revoke an operator licence by the Traffic Commissioner.
Topics covered by the one-day training course include:
- Operator licence commitment
- Introduction to drivers hours regulations
- EU driving, work time and break limits
- EU rest requirements
- Tachograph management
- Safe loading overview
- Vehicle maintenance
- Operator compliance risk score
- Course summary and review
The course is free to FORS members (a maximum of two attendees per company), and is DCPC accredited, so will count towards periodic training. Those wishing to bid for courses must be managing transport at the minimum of supervisory level to obtain a place, to gain the maximum benefit from this training. The actual level of management will have to be declared upon application.
