Many clients rely on various modes of transport as part of their commercial offering. Holmes can assist when transport arrangements come under the consideration of the regulator or the police.
We advise clients that are subject to an investigation by the Road Safety Authority. In our experience, proper preparation prior to any such hearing will achieve the best outcome for the operator. Enforcement proceedings may arise for a range of concerns, including poor maintenance, unauthorised transport operations and issues relating to good repute and professional competence. We also support businesses dealing with operator licence administration relating to legal requirements and corporate transactions. We advise clients on their documented systems and practices for managing their fleet, from commercial vehicles to private vehicles being used ‘for business.’ Such advice covers issues including insurance, driver licensing checks, working hours and the provision of suitable vehicles.
