Office of the Traffic Commissioner: Helping your drivers to comply

Helping your drivers to comply
TC guidance offers case examples to share with staff
How many of your drivers know they’d face a four week suspension for using a mobile phone while driving a commercial vehicle?
Or that they’d be suspended for six weeks for a second speeding offence?
Some possibly don’t even know the Traffic Commissioner can take action against their professional driving licences.
That’s why our vocational driver guidance has 26 different examples of how traffic commissioners deal with driver conduct.
The case studies cover a range of circumstances, including:
• mobile phone offending
• drink driving bans
• using a magnet to interfere with the tachograph
• using another driver’s digicard
• failing to respond to the directions of a DVSA stopping officer
The guidance also lists the starting points which traffic commissioners consider for different offences.
You can use these starting points and the case examples to educate your drivers about the consequences of poor conduct.
