Earned Recognition

The DVSA continues to promote the importance of the Earned Recognition Scheme

and Vehicle operators wanting to join the scheme require IT systems and software that can report on the important performance measures.

The Aquarius IT team are ready to support your ER journey for both maintenance and driving activity.

Earned Recognition

Here's how it works

What performance measures are reported?


The DVSA require an automated report on a set of KPI's which cover

  • Safety inspection records
  • Driver defect reporting
  • MOT's for vehicles and trailers

Via the Aquarius IT Asset Maintenance portal, these reports are automatically forwarded to the team at the DVSA for assessment on a 4 weekly cycle.

Driving Activity

Reports are sent to the DVSA on KPI's for Driving activity, measuring things such as

  • Tachograph infringements
  • Repeat offenders
  • Missing mileage

These numerous requirements are reported on via the Aquarius ClockWatcher software every 4 weeks.

Through the Aquarius IT interactive dashboard our products make delivering KPI's more manageable.
