What is DVSA Earned Recognition in Derbyshire?

DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency) Earned Recognition is a voluntary scheme designed to enable vehicle operators in Derbyshire and across the UK, to prove that their organisation meets driver and vehicle standards.

DVSA earned recognition operators regularly share performance information with the DVSA in the form of a monthly report.

What are the Benefits of DVSA Earned Recognition for Operators in Derbyshire?

By joining the scheme and gaining earned recognition status, the DVSA know that an operator is safe and compliant. In turn, this means that their vehicles are less likely to be stopped for inspections and checks.

It is also a way for an operator to show that they are an exemplary operator, when bidding for contracts. This is shown by being able to display the DVSA Earned Recognition Marque on your website and other publicity materials.

Our Derbyshire DVSA Earned Recognition consultant is Michelle Scott.

Roadside checks cost operators both time and money, and the DVSA want to avoid targeting safe and responsible operators unnecessarily. For this reason, the earned recognition scheme was created by DVSA.

This means that the DVSA are better able to target inspections and disruptive roadside checks. In turn this helps them to stop dangerous operators and drivers putting others at risk.
