Frequently Asked questions

FAQs

If you have any other questions please contact us.

Can someone look after all aspects of the O' Licence undertaking on my behalf?

Yes! we can bear in mind that the Operator Licence undertakings are firstly the responsibility of the operator, although we can support ensuring good levels of compliance, the buck stops with the O' Licence holder.

My business has a restricted licence, do I need a Transport Manager (TMCPC)?

No! there is no obligation to have a formal transport manager, although as the operator licence holder, the undertaking required under the law is still relevant, hence someone needs to have the ultimate responsibility, most of which can be delegated.

Can you help with dealing with the Office of the Traffic Commissioner?

Yes! we can. You might have been served a PG9 or a PG13 perhaps. You could have received an ‘S’ marked prohibition notice, an instant red OCRS, asked to complete a DBAQ or have been asked to attend a Public Inquiry! We can support you with all these eventualities.

Can you support me in applying for a new O' Licence or making changes to it?

Yes! we can. As is the case with dealing with any regulatory bodies, ensuring that the correct paperwork, procedures and timescales are applied saves time and money in the long term. Get us involved as early as possible.

I need help with understanding the Tachograph data, can you help?

Yes! we can. We can help in 3 simple ways.

  • help train all the individuals

  • offer remote management of tachograph compliance, ensuring that any issues are quickly flagged and fixed.

  • offer Advanced Tachograph Analysis & reporting

I don't know where to start, what should I do?

You can do three things:

  • Find out what's wrong, our audits will help in identifying the gaps.

  • Train yourself and all relevant staff, our bespoke training can help.

  • Have systems in place that monitor and flag any issues, we can do this remotely.

The Senior Consultants @the FTC

With many years of industry experience, having supported 100s of businesses with practical solutions, our experts leave no stone unturned in ensuring that they find the best solutions that work for your business environment, culture and systems.

André Renner 

"Good Communication is vital"

Having worked in the compliance sector for over 17 years I have a wealth of experience in not only general compliance but also advanced compliance. My role is primarily as a solution finder. I am in a unique position to be able to advise on not only what an operator will need to do to be compliant but also to find creative, cost and time-efficient solutions. My legislative experience is complimented by my technical expertise in finding effective solutions. Having been involved from the very start in the development of Tachomaster, I have been able to understand what issues can occur and, more importantly, what solutions there are. My experience is in both the technical and legislative.

My roles have been in sales, finding solutions, training large and small groups or individuals, 3rd line support, and product development.

Zed Aziz

"Success lies in routines"

Having worked with skip-hire, grab-hire and scaffolding businesses, I have real empathy with operators about running their core businesses and balancing their responsibilities as an operator. I can assist with ensuring that your business operates successfully whilst also being 100% compliant. My strength lies in providing practical solutions that can work alongside existing practices, rather than reinventing the wheel. Also due to many years of experience in compliance and data analytics businesses, I have a real affinity for identifying root causes of non-compliance, saving time and money for the operators.

My aim isn't to catch you doing it wrong but to help you do it right effortlessly.

My field of expertise is not just limited to transport, rather I can help with Business Development, HR, Waste Management, H&S, Digital Marketing and AI business solutions.
