If you cannot demonstrate to the DVSA that you have total control of your business, you may be non-compliant & at risk of instant cessation!
Did you know that certain roles within your VTS are classed as MANDATORY by the DVSA?
The rules and regulations surrounding the compliance required to operate a VTS are both complex and constantly evolving.
Unless you keep on top of these ever changing rules you could be exposing your staff and your business to instant cessation at best, and in the worse case scenario you may even be open to criminal prosecution (watch the video above to find out how)
As a VTS owner, its imperative (and mandatory) that you have all the relevant people in your business structure to both comply with the DVSA rules and also to give you a complete “Span Of Control” from the top to the bottom of your VTS.
It’s a mandatory requirement that you appoint at least one Site Manager at each VTS. Its important that you do not confuse this role with the General Manager or Aftersales Manager of your VTS – they are NOT the same thing.
FACT… in a worst case scenario, the actions of your testers could land you in prison!
Because the DVSA state that as the AEP (the VTS owner, board member or Director) you could be criminally responsible for any harm or loss incurred as a result of anyone in your VTS – this includes your Testers (watch the video to find out why)
The MOT Testing Guide clearly states that the AEP is the “Legally Responsible” person for the VTS, this extends to being criminally responsible for lack of control over your VTS that led to death or injury on the road.
EXAMPLE… A tester in your VTS carries out a test at the weekend under pressure from a family member. The vehicle is then the cause of a Road Traffic Accident which results in fatalities. Not only is the tester going to prison, but its highly likely that as the AEP YOU could be joining him in prison, as you’re the legally responsible person for the whole VTS!
