Tachograph Analysis

OLMCís new Tachograph Analysis services provide complete analysis of both digital and analogue tachos. Our service is designed to remove the stress of being compliant with tachograph law and driverís hours rules.

It is worth noting that the DVSA - Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (formally VOSA - Vehicle and Operators Services Agency) is always striving to increase its enforcement activities and with tachograph and driverís hours infringements being one of the most common reasons for a prohibition and fine, itís easy to see why tacho analysis and management is now one of the more important factors of running HGVs.

We at OLMC can assist and provide you with all the necessary information you require to apply. We can cater to all your needs, from Restricted to PSV and Standard National to International.

Traffic Commissioners & DVSA

When holding an operators licence it is advantageous to know about the governmental structure that administers and enforces the legislation.

Who are the DVSA? Formally knows as VOSA, the DVSA are an executive agency of the DfT, their function is to administer operator licensing legislation (amongst other functions relating to transport). They work closely with the Traffic Commissioners by providing evidence gathered to support the enforcement and judicial functions of the traffic commissioners. The DVSA can also issue graduated fixed penalties at the roadside and direct traffic. Authority to direct traffic and issue penalties is granted to the DVSA (formally VOSA) under the Community Safety Accreditation Scheme and is done so on a regional basis.

Who are the Traffic Commissioners? The Traffic commissioners are industry regulators that have been granted certain judicial functions in regard to operator licensing. The Traffic Commissioners (as part of the Judiciary) are granted independence from executive departments including the DfT and therefore VOSA. The UK is split into traffic areas, each traffic area is regulated by a specific Traffic Commissioner. There is also a Senior Traffic Commissioner who has the additional function of encouraging that licensing decisions be consistent throughout the traffic areas. The Senior Traffic Commissioner also has the ability to issue guidance and direction to the Traffic Commissioners.
