Around 85% of roadside prohibitions due to roadworthiness could have been avoided if an effective walk-around vehicle check had been conducted.

Transform traditional paper-based, walk-around checks to real-time, one-time data input and compliance that’s completely configurable and cloud-based, with our enterprise class mobile driver vehicle safety check software.

There are many reasons why SmartCheck is better for any size transport business to make their operations faster, safer, more cost-effective and confident of compliance.

Why SmartCheck?

SmartCheck offers benefits for every role in your organisation by making data reporting easy and accessible.
By capturing walk-around vehicle check results in real time, complete with pictures if needed, your people have access to reliable data and management information, can easily demonstrate compliance and use the information to focus on any problem areas of non-compliance that could result in expensive fines or loss of the operators’ licence.

SmartCheck enables:

  • Commercial Drivers to perform safety checks of vehicles and other transportation assets using smartphones and industrial handheld computers
  • Transport Managers to see the status of all vehicles in the fleet in real time and track the history of safety checks and repairs using a web browser.
  • Fleet Mechanics to log repairs and to set the safety status of vehicles in the fleet using a web browser.
  • Transport Operators to generate electronic compliance reports for the DVSA and generate internal reports of defects and repairs.

    Danny Betts

    As per our ongoing training for all our drivers, it’s extremely important that our staff are fully up to date with the latest rules and regulations to ensure they and our customers are safe while traveling on our vehicles. One of the most important checks to ensure the safety of everyone is the walk-around check completed by the driver prior to taking our vehicles out on the road. This course completed by Ridgeway Training gives our drivers the refresher training they require to ensure they check that our vehicles are safe and compliant before going out on the public road.

    Great course, very clear and simple to understand. Great Instructor!

  • Great job from start to finish
    Nick Pearce | K2 Transport

    Chris did a great job from start to finish. I found the start heavy going, but due to the trainer, I came through it!

  • The care and attention students receive is exemplary
    Roger Coates | Pheonix Coaches

    Ridgeway Training and Chris Shelford are highly recommended. The course is well organised, Chris takes heed of his students and will go the extra mile for them. He listens to their needs and as a result of this has introduced a further day for exam technique. This together with the revision day gives students more confidence, particularly if they haven't been in an exam environment for a number of years. Chris will also offer one to one tuition if it is felt to be necessary. The care and attention students receive is exemplary

  • Every member of my staff wanted to pass on their thanks

  • I would not hesitate in recommending Ridgeway Training for all training needs.
    Andrew Bell | Bells Buses

    I attended the International Passenger Transport CPC course in February / March 2016. From the initial course booking, it was apparent that it would be well organised. Chris welcomed us to well-equipped classrooms and comfortable facilities. The course material was well presented, easy to use and Chris was very experienced in delivering the course effectively to a time schedule. The overall learning experience was excellent, enjoyable and I would not hesitate in recommending Ridgeway Training for all training needs.
