We are the only membership organisation in the UK that requires 100% of our members to undergo a proactive annual operator licence compliance audit. More importantly we are the only UK membership organisation to include the cost of the annual audit for our members in the membership subscription fee. An annual full systems and procedures operator licence audit undertaken by one of our qualified transport professionals and experienced auditors ensures our members and non-member clients can keep up to date with industry and regulatory changes.
By providing ongoing support and annual recommendations for your business, our aim is to ensure all our members and non-member clients remain compliant to your operator licence undertakings and conditions. For non-members and new operators we can offer peace of mind or a helping hand.

Undertakings Audits as requested by a Traffic Commissioner

Our experience of completing these types of audits will be essential to ensure the Traffic Commissioner receives a professional overview of your current systems. The structure of our audit template will also enables you to present your action plans and actions taken to resolve the recommendations identified. This service is completed over two days rather than the one day for a proactive audit.
