DVSA Earned Recognition

DVSA Earned Recognition is an industry accepted way to prove your organisation meets driver and vehicle standards. Earned Recognition accreditation is a voluntary scheme aimed at professional, conscientious transport operators of all sizes. Operators achieving Earned Recognition status will immediately gain a competitive advantage and enjoy other significant benefits.

Convey and the DVSA Earned Recognition Scheme

Convey are one of just a handful of service providers worldwide who are on the DVSA approved list as an IT system provider for the Earned Recognition scheme. This means we can assist you with the whole accreditation process and you only need one supplier contact point.

Earned Recognition for Free!
The Earned Recognition app is now integrated into Convey's Driver and Vehicle Compliance solution. If you have our Tachograph Analysis or Fleet Management modules, you will have the Earned Recognition module for free!*

*You will also need our WalkAround module to record first responses to defects.

How Does Earned Recognition Work?

To become part of the Earned Recognition scheme you must have a DVSA validated management system capable of monitoring key performance indicators and automatically reporting exceptions. Convey provide exactly this system.

Key performance indicators (KPIs) are then used to measure an operator's compliance for both maintenance and driving activities. Our system sends notification of your performance against these KPIs to the DVSA. If any KPIs are missed the DVSA will work with you to fix any issues.

Please note: The DVSA will have no access to your data or the Convey platform.
