TRAFFIC COMMISSIONERS RELEASE
BULLETINS SO OPERATORS CAN
LEARN LESSONS FROM ISSUES
RAISED IN PUBLIC INQUIRES
The Office of the Traffic
Commissioner is starting a new
series of bulletins designed to help
maintain and promote O licence
compliance. This will include
looking at some of the key issues
raised in public inquiries.
In the first one, guidance is
delivered on downloading and
driver defect reporting.
Downloading vehicle units and
driver cards
• Choose the appropriate period
within the maximum.
• Take a risk-based approach.
• Contemplate the following factors
that might increase risk of non-
compliance: drivers who are away
from base, drivers with a history of
previous offences and drivers on
strict schedules.
• Be aware of the possibility of data
from driver cards being overwritten
if the period for driver cards has
surpassed.
Driver defect reporting
• Look out for tachograph reports
that begin with immediate driving
as this would indicate unrecorded
walk round checks or no checks
at all meaning the records are
incomplete.
This should be habitual and failing to do so may
be a deliberate action.
• Drivers should immediately place
their card in the slot and select
“other work”, every time they drive.
For further information please contact a member
of our regulatory team on 01254 828300.
• Operators should be aware that drivers may
hide extra driving or other work at the beginning
of the day in case of potential problems later.
