A Bridge Too Far

A Bridge Too Far

According to Network Rail, each day there are 5 bridge strikes involving large goods or passenger vehicles across the UK. Did you know if it is your vehicle involved in a bridge strike, you will be called to a hearing before the Traffic Commissioner and you will face regulatory action against your Operator’s Licence. The driver of the vehicle involved will also be called to a hearing and risks the revocation of their vocational entitlement and disqualification for 6 months. If your answer to the above is hesitant then why not put the brakes on and join our e-training. This bitesized course focuses on the Traffic Commissioners expectations, roller brake testing, laden tests and understanding the printouts.
