The main purpose of Goods Vehicle Operator Licensing is to ensure the safe and proper use of goods vehicles and to protect the environment around operating centres. In addition to a stringent licence application process, the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) monitors compliance by carrying out roadside inspections and generating an Operator Compliance Risk Score (OCRS).
OCRS is used to calculate the risk of an operator not following the rules on roadworthiness (the condition of its vehicles) and traffic, eg drivers’ hours, weighing checks. It’s more likely that your vehicles will be inspected if your OCRS is high.
