Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS)

Why Compliance Matters

The easiest way to monitor and dispatch your vehicles

White Bar

The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is a highly regarded program that verifies a business’s commitment to safety and sustainability. It is widely recognised across the logistics industry in the UK. In addition to recognition, FORS offers various tools and training programs that assist drivers and fleet managers in measuring and enhancing their performance while reducing fuel consumption across all aspects of their operations. Fleet Witness offers FORS kits that enable your business to comply with Bronze, Silver, and Gold FORS standards, ensuring your business is FORS compliant.

FORS Bronze

Fleet Witness provides all the equipment your business needs to comply with this Bronze FORS accreditation, and can come to your site and install this equipment as you require.

  • Class V mirror on nearside
  • Class VI mirror at front
  • Side under-run protection on both sides (except where impractical)
  • External markings to warn vulnerable road users.

FORS Silver

In order to achieve FORS Silver status, an initial Bronze accreditation must be obtained. The emphasis is then placed more heavily on ensuring physical safety of the vehicle, including the mandatory installation of specific equipment items listed below.

  • Blind Spot Cameras
  • Side Scan Sensor Systems
  • Left Turn Alarms
  • Reversing Alarms

FORS Gold

FORS Gold requires the same vehicle safety system as FORS Silver.



  • A camera system that monitors the near-side vehicle blind spot.
  • An in-cab display screen to provide the driver with a view of the near-side blind spot.

Why should I consider FORS?

There are a number of reasons it can be beneficial to move to FORS Silver level.

  • FORS accreditation demonstrates commitment to managing road risk
  • Potential cost savings through improved fuel efficiency across fleet
  • Companies adhering to FORS standards typically experience a reduction in incidents, leading to further savings
  • FORS accreditation signifies high standards in legal compliance, safety, efficiency, and environmental protection
  • FORS Silver is often a contractual/procurement requirement when tendering for work
  • FORS accreditation helps attract and retain environmentally-conscious staff
  • Compliance with TfL’s WRRR standards ensures safe system requirements for DVS permit applications to enter London.

All you need to know about Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS)

Bronze requirement V6 and Silver requirement S6 for vehicle safety equipment were revised at version 5 of the FORS Standard to align with the DVS Safe System improvements for right-hand drive vehicles. This means that Silver and Gold members with right-hand drive vehicles that are zero-star rated, but fitted with ALL safety equipment in accordance with V6 AND S6, meet the safety requirements to obtain a permit and do not need to fit additional equipment. However, all FORS members operating vehicles over 12 tonnes, regardless of their level of accreditation, must still apply for the HGV Safety Permit in order to drive in London.

CLOCS is a set of road safety requirements that the construction client expects within the supply chain – FORS is a quality standard for fleet operations that is recognised by the client.

FORS Approval is valid for twelve (12) months duration to ensure that all content remains valid and is updated with industry and legislative changes.

You can expect to receive your audit report and results within 10 working days from when the audit was conducted.
