Welcome To Truck UK – The Compliance Specialists


Truck UK is the recognised premier 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 and supplies, designed to assist and/or improve operator licence compliance, for any size or type of company that runs trucks from within the UK.

Truck UK is an independent  provider that is totally focussed on improving and maintaining high levels of compliance for all of our 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) package, developed specifically to fulfil the needs of operators who need the day to day support of a specialist provider of compliance advice, information and services that they can rely upon.

“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 accepted as satisfactory and suitable to fulfil an undertaking entered into with the Traffic Commissioner’s. This service normally takes approximately one day on-site and approximately half a day producing the written report and in such circumstances the fee would be £455.00 + VAT. For further information freephone 0800 644 87 87 and ask to speak to Steve Williams, or e-mail Steve at the address below and leave your contact details and he will contact you. The e-mail address to find out more about the audit service is: sdw@truckuk.net

Goods Vehicle Operators – One Day Operator Licence Awareness Courses

Each individual and/or operator 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 trainers are experienced and qualified in goods vehicle licence operation. They provide training to delegates who are putting themselves forward for the OCR Certificate of Professional Competence for Transport Managers in Road Haulage. At November 2014 we still have five places available for the first of the Operator CPC qualification courses in 2015, to be presented in Peterborough by Jeff Marsh and Steve Williams. For more information, or to ensure that you have a place on this course, contact Truck UK on 01832 274762 as soon as possible.

All our trainers/advisers have road transport compliance knowledge that is up to date and we invest heavily year on year in ongoing refresher training, to ensure what we say and what we do can be relied upon to be accurate. If we don’t know the answer to any question 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 regularly provide a one-day  Operator Licence Awareness Course (JAUPT approved course number CRS7642/184) that can be presented ‘in-company’ to up to five of the operator’s staff for a single fee of £455.00 + 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 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 £765.00 + 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 a preliminary hearing or 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.
