Restricted Operator Licence Awareness course

Restricted Operator Licence Awareness course

Article2-280116FORS is 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 refresher training 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 hour’s 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 attend 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.
