All our drivers have been fully trained on drivers hours regulations and procedures. We as a transport organisation are tightly regulated through driving standards agency on drivers hours and the working time directive. We fully comply with those regulations, recording and monitoring these daily.

Our requirement for drivers hours and monitoring is delivered through our Optac digital tachocard downloading facility that uploads all drivers activity and is constantly managed by our administration for infringements. We manage all our rural services using domestic drivers hours regulations and manage this through our route design and allocation and duty computer programme.

We have had no prohibitions or infringements in the last 5 years of records. We further pride ourselves in having achieved a first time pass ratio at annual test of 100% over the last 5 years. We consider our vehicles to be some of the best maintained vehicles on the road.

We are what VOSA class as a green light operator. This categorises Eve Coaches Ltd as a First class operator that has demonstrated a 100% first time pass ratio at annual Vehicle testing, Zero defects on fleet and roadside checks by VOSA and No drivers hours infringements in the past 5 years.

This has been achieved with the commitment of our highly skilled and trained mechanics, Drives that are well trained in walk round checks, vehicle equipment, drivers hours, all safety
procedures and our supervision and support at administration and senior level. Never compromise on high standards is our policy. This comes at a price and one worth paying.
