Welcome to Professional Transport Services

Specialists in ALL Aspects of Transport Operations and Management.

PTS offers training, refresher and awareness courses, together with reliable consultancy services designed to assist continued regulatory and legal compliance for the road transport operations.  We travel throughout the UK providing our award winning support, advice and training; during the pandemic we continued to offer services remotely using online platforms. 

Our consultancy services ensure the systems and practices used in your operation meet the undertakings agreed to when the Operator Licence was granted, and to the requirements of enforcement agencies, with effective solutions recommended where problems arise.  Our Systems Compliance Audit, which can be undertaken in person and currently remotely following strict guidelines, meets the expectations of the Traffic Commissioner and is supported by full report and an action plan which are also readily received by the Office of the Traffic Commissioner.

Following the continued accceptance of remote services used during the pandemic by the regulatory authority and enforcement agencies, we are proud to continue to offer our services and training in both remote and in-person, face to face formats.

The Transport Industry is one of the most legislated on a scale comparable only with to the nuclear industry. PTS assists with the interpretation and implementation of legislation as it is updated by government.

Our training courses include a robust Transport Managers' Refresher and Operator Licence Awareness course which will serve to bring those attending up to date with regulatory changes and industry best practice. Our courses can be undertaken in-house at the company premises, externally at a convenient venue or at our base and also remotely using meeting place platforms.

Covert or Secret Passenger services help to identify problems on the road and ensure compliance with the regulations governing the service routes operated. Observations are backed up by a comprehensive report.

PTS have been working with operators and drivers for many years offering legal compliance advice and support, and also assistance with resolutions for problems which may arise from roadside encounters or inspections from DVSA. Our consultants are very familiar with the requirements of and the preparation for Driver Conduct Hearings, Preliminary Hearings or Public Inquiries where representation before the Traffic Commissioner is also offered, if you should find yourself in this position.
