The DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency) and Police have the authority to stop you as a commercial HGV, PCV, LGV or PSV driver.
They may ask to see a variety of compliance documents and carry out spot checks on your vehicle. Therefore, it is essential to perform daily checks using inspection pads, which can help determine any faults. It’s your responsibility as the driver as well as your operator, to make sure your vehicle is roadworthy.
If faults are found by the authorities, they can issue prohibitions if necessary. A prohibition can immediately stop you from driving your vehicle until the fault is fixed, or a delayed prohibition may be issued, depending on the vehicle fault. If an offence is committed, depending on the seriousness, Police and DVSA officers can also issue fixed penalty notices.
At Tachodisc, you’ll find a variety of vehicle maintenance products, including inspection pads, record books, wall charts, check & reporting books, and check & recalibration charts, to stay compliant.
