FORS Support

Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme

The accreditation’s main objective is to raise quality and efficiency standards within fleets to the highest levels. FORS focuses on educating and improving best practice procedures in safety, efficiency, and environmental protection.

The result is that your company will better manage work-related road risk (WRRR). FORS is open to operators of vans, lorries, mini-buses, coaches, and other vehicles, as well as to the organisations that award contracts to those operators. While voluntary, FORS accreditation makes strong business sense.

Gaining FORS accreditation will provide your company with potential new opportunities for growth, this is because many companies now insist their suppliers and contractors must be FORS accredited in order to be considered for certain contracts.

Achieving the FORS standard can be very daunting, and at times confusing, because of that we want to make our clients feel at ease and we try and make the process as simple as possible for you by providing you with,

We can provide support where we can you get you from no knowledge of FORS to a Gold member. You will be provided with all the required policies and procedures, as well as the risk assessments required by FORS to enable you to pass your audit.

Prices are totally bespoke and depend on the size and type of your fleet, as every operation is different, and we cater for all.

FORS Options


FORS Bronze is the first line of accreditation which you must achieve to be able to progress further within the FORS scheme. The process involves a full audit, either onsite or remotely, of your policies and procedures, and requires the drivers and transport operational staff to carry out some mandatory online training


FORS Silver is the next level of accreditation and requires the uploading of documentation to evidence that your operation is at the silver standard. Some of the items to be evidenced are fuel data, accident data, further training for the drivers, that includes the on-cycle Safe Urban Driver training course, which is designed to help drivers see the roads from a cyclist’s perspective.


FORS Gold is the pinnacle of all the levels of accreditation. It requires case studies and much more in-depth evidencing of certain policies and procedures and how you, as a company, can help promote FORS to your staff and customers. Gold level operators are viewed as the ‘best of the best’.
