HGV Compliance

Non-compliance presents a big problem for fleets. You might find yourself burdened with hefty fines and penalties. Beyond the financial strain, there’s the potential downtime caused by accident-damaged vehicles to consider. But what’s even more concerning? if it’s due to negligence or a failure to keep up with safety regulations, can lead to injuries or tragically, loss of life. Ensure you’re on top of these regulations for the sake of your business and, more importantly, for the safety of not just your drivers but other road users.


Ensuring HGV fleets meet the FORS Silver accreditation. Our expert technicians will work with you to equip your vehicles with the necessary cameras, left turn audible warning systems, and blind spot minimisation devices needed. We also offer consultation services to help you understand the requirements of the FORS Silver accreditation. And if needed we can provide the hardware from reputable manufacturers.

HS2 Compliance

As a fleet operator working on HS2, compliance isn’t just important—it’s mandatory. Without meeting the required HS2 Vehicle standards, your vehicles won’t even get site access. This means halted work and missed job opportunities. HS2 mandates that all HGVs involved with the project must have the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) at Silver Level to maintain minimum standards. If you don’t comply? HS2 can ban or suspend non-compliant fleets and drivers.

We’re here to help. Our team offers consultation and installation services to ensure your vehicles align with HS2 regulations. Avoid bans, suspensions, and gain the confidence that your fleet is always ready for action. Reach out to us today, and let’s make sure you’re HS2-compliant.
