Lloyd Morgan Group are a leading provider of Driver Pre Use “Gate Checks” to the road transport (HGV) and passenger transport (PSV) industries. Drivers must conduct a daily walk around check of their vehicles in accordance with the DVSA’s Guide to Maintaining Roadworthiness to ensure compliance and operators are required to continually review the performance of these driver walk around checks. These ‘Gate Checks’ will aid you in identifying any potential issues regarding your drivers walk around checks.

The Office of the Traffic Commissioner (OTC) estimates that 85% of roadside fines for infringements could be avoided if the driver had performed a walk around check before beginning a journey.

Driver Pre Use “Gate Checks”

Who is it aimed at?

All operators who want to assess the compliance and efficiency of their Driver Walk Around Checks.


Lloyd Morgan Group auditors will stop drivers leaving site to simulate a visit by DVSA. They will check the daily walkaround check sheet of the vehicle completed by the driver that day and then do a physical walk around check of the vehicle themselves.

Checks can be carried out on outbound and or inbound vehicles

A summary report is produced for each site for all vehicles and trailers checked which will help you to identify potential training needs and areas of exposure.


Audits are carried out on your own premises


Will depend on the size of the depo and the number of vehicles to be checked
