The haulage industry is one of the most heavily regulated industries in the UK. Every day your fleet of vehicles are at risk of being stopped and checked by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).
You need to be confident that you have systems in place to ensure that your lorries, trucks or buses are free from defects which could lead to a Prohibition Notice being issued, that they are loaded correctly and that the driver is taking the correct breaks and not exceeding driving limits.
Breaches of these rules can result in potentially dangerous situations, both for your drivers and for other road users and can lead to prosecution so it’s vital to seek expert advice whenever and wherever you have doubts about your responsibilities.
At Langleys we offer comprehensive transport advice and representation for both operators of HGVs and Public Service Vehicles and also for individuals in respect of general motoring offences.
