Cutting compliance risk scores

Published:  06 August, 2009

WARWICK: Preventative maintenance is the key to cutting Operator Compliance Risk Scores, the points system used by Vosa and Traffic Commissioners to help rate operators.

Volvo Truck said such maintenance programmes help dealers build their knowledge of customers' vehicles and this helps hit above average MoT first time pass rates.

Göran Nyberg, Volvo Trucks' managing director said: "Vosa itself says that improving MoT initial pass rates is a good way for an operator to improve their OCRS."

He says the firm's dealers are working hard to continually improve those pass rates, with several depots regularly hitting 100% figures for their customers.
