Welcome To Truck UK – The Compliance Specialists
Truck UK is an independent provider of industry best practice maintenance audits; tachograph records processing and analysis; goods vehicle operator driver and management training and a whole host of other services, designed to ensure client compliance for any size or type of goods vehicle operator.
Truck UK is totally focussed on improving and maintaining high levels of compliance for all client companies, while at the same time reducing their overall costs.
Over the last seven years Truck UK has built up a package of services through the Operator Compliance Scheme (OCS), developed specifically to fulfil the needs of small to medium size operators who need the day to day support of a specialist provider of compliance advice, information and services that they can rely on.
“improving compliance ………… while reducing costs”
Everything we do is focussed on ensuring our clients have specialist support and services that enables them to be confident that their levels of compliance are high and meaningful, while at the same time the associated costs of that essential compliance are low.
Independent Maintenance Systems, Maintenance Documentation and Vehicle Inspection Audits
A large part of our operator compliance scheme (OCS) package concentrates on designing, producing and implementing best practice procedures to enable operators to attain high levels of compliance. To ensure standards are not allowed to slip we continue to work with OCS users by carrying out regular independent audits of their systems of work. This is all part of the OCS package.
All operators can take advantage of our independent maintenance auditing service, whether they sign up to OCS or not. We provide maintenance systems, maintenance documentation and vehicle inspection audits as accepted as suitable to fulfil an undertaking entered into with the Traffic Commissioner’s. This service normally takes approximately one day and in such circumstances the fee would be £385.00 + VAT. For further information freephone 0800 644 87 87 and ask to speak to Steve Williams, or e-mail and leave your contact details and he will contact you.

Goods Vehicle Operators – One Day Operator Licence Awareness Courses
Each individual and/or organisation we work with is treated in the same way, in that we work with their best interests at the forefront of everything we provide.
All our staff are experienced and qualified in goods vehicle licence operation. Furthermore, their knowledge is up to date and we invest heavily in ongoing refresher training to ensure what we say and do can be relied upon to be accurate. If we don’t know the answer we will admit that we don’t know and then do our best to find the correct answer and provide it to the client.
To assist operators to keep up to date and compliant we provide a one-day ‘in-house’ Operator Licence Awareness Course (JAUPT approved course number CRS7642/184) that can be attended by up to five of the operator’s staff for a single fee of £385.00 + VAT (this is a single fee covering one days attendance for up to five delegates), on a date and at a venue to suit the operator. This course has proved particularly popular with operators’ that have entered into an undertaking with the Traffic Commissioner to refresh their knowledge of their operator licence obligations.
Transport Managers – Two Day Transport Manager Refresher Courses
We work closely with both specified transport managers who have been nominated on standard licences and also with persons with responsibility for continuous and effective management of the transport of restricted licences. An increasingly popular in-house course/workshop that we provide is the two-day Transport Manager Refresher Course/Workshop, at a venue supplied by the client for up to five delegates (for a single fee of £660.00 + VAT covering two days attendance for up to five delegates). Attendance on this course is suitable to fulfil an undertaking entered into with the Traffic Commissioner at Public Inquiry.
The course covers all the topics within the Operator Licence Awareness Course in even greater detail and then time is spent working through every aspect of the responsibilities and obligations of managing a goods vehicle operator licence. The course can include a ‘mock’ PI, that often brings home to attendees the seriousness of being ‘called up’ by the Traffic Commissioner and just how they may be dealt with should they be unfortunate enough to give the independent regulator reason to question their competence.

We regularly review the package of courses that we can provide and we are always keen to work with operators to put together bespoke training that is useful and relevant to the type of work they specialise in.
Should your operation be such that a specially tailored training course would be of benefit to you we would be keen to hear from you. We are happy to design, produce and submit for JAUPT approval any course that may both assist a particular client and also enable us to offer that course to others that work in the same field.

Truck UK is a totally independent service provider organisation that only employs specialist and experienced staff who know the industry that they are involved in. When clients require expertise that Truck UK does not possess we source other top quality organisations who we continuously monitor and audit, thereby acting as guarantors for their services.
We believe that our best practice approach of only providing quality services that can be trusted is the reason we have been able to build up our retained client base year on year.
