Public Inquiry preparation


Nobody’s business is perfectly compliant and there are some things that happen which are less than welcome, one of those could include a visit or a vehicle getting stopped by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). You feel confident that you have all the correct systems and procedures in place, your drivers have completed their driver walk around checks and you have been operating for years’. But what if mechanical defects are found, there are drivers’ hours infringements and so on?

Before you know it, you are facing worst case scenario… you are called to a Public Inquiry by the Traffic Commissioner.

This unwelcome turn of events can be incredibly daunting and can come as a huge concern to the future of your business. It’s easy to bury your head in the sand, but acting quickly, decisively, knowing what to do and who to turn too, is key.
