Audit & Compliance Management 

Our objective is to protect our clients Business and protect the safety of others,

We achieve our objective by using effective and continuous control systems which we put in at the start of any contract we service. We know from experience when new operators are put on the right track from the start and have a friendly, casual relationship with their Transport Managers is something the Vehicle Inspectorate looks for. This is also good for your company as we work with you and this relationship clearly shows the VOSA inspectors that your business is solid from the foundations up.

Obtaining a Goods Vehicle Operator Licence is often the simplest stage in the process, the retention of the licence through meeting the legal responsibilities and duties is the real challenge. Our comprehensive audit and compliance service will help you manage your operator licence systems and documentation to ensure you never knowingly put your licence at risk.

Vosa inspectors have a habit of springing snap inspections on new Goods Vehicle Operator Licence Holders as a way of making sure you conform to their rules and transport legislation. E4T are not worried by these snap inspections or audits as we make sure everything is inmlimented correctly the first time, every time.

Our audit service comprises all of the following and much more: -

Full examination of your preventive maintenance inspection framework. 

Review of inspection frequencies, based on vehicle activity and mileage.

Analysis of driver procedures and reporting.

Driver licence and CPC check procedure.

Driver disciplinary review.

Vehicle authorisation and Operating centre information.

DVSA self-service information review and update.

Advice & guidance on frequency of follow-up visits and reviews.

E4T make sure
