FREE driver info cards to help you:

With more than 4 million vans registered in the UK, it is a common misconception that there is no legislation governing van drivers and van operations.
Due to their size and weight, vans can be driven and used for anything – right?
Wrong, in fact very wrong. With an increase of roadside stops for vans and the average fine per offence in the region of £972, it doesn’t take long for van drivers and owners to figure out that vans which don’t comply with the rules, regulations standards and procedures can be a costly experience in fines, let alone additional costs for recovery and repair.
The Van Driver Toolkit
Working with the National Highways Commercial Vehicle Incident Prevention Team, we have produced a series of driver information online modules to assist van drivers and fleet operators in dispelling uncertainty and myth. You can share the whole toolkit with your drivers, or you may prefer to share individual modules whenever you want to check understanding of best practice, or reinforce your driving for work policies.
The toolkit will help you implement best practice for what is required to reduce costs, improve operating conditions and ensure safe and legal vehicles and wellbeing for your drivers.
All resources are available in Email PDF, Print PDF & Responsive Webpage formats
