    What is Earned Recognition?

    Earned Recognition is currently a voluntary scheme created by the DVSA as a way for vehicle operators to prove that their organisation meets driver and vehicle standards. By signing up to the scheme, you regularly share performance information with the DVSA, and in return your vehicles are less likely to be stopped for inspections.
