Tell the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) about collisions or incidents involving your vehicles if you've joined the DVSA earned recognition scheme.
Use this form (ER112) if you’re a DVSA earned recognition vehicle operator and one of your vehicles has been involved in a collision or incident.
You must report:
- serious injuries (such as broken bones, damage to major organs or overnight hospitalisation)
- a safety critical system failure (such as brake failure or wheel loss)
- a vehicle catching fire
- significant body damage to the vehicle (such as a bridge strike)
- something that could cause negative publicity that might bring DVSA earned recognition into disrepute
- a vehicle received an ‘S’ marked roadworthiness prohibition
- the operator or one of your employees are found guilty and convicted of an offence
- most serious infringement (such as not having a tachograph or carrying passengers or goods without holding a valid driving licence)
You must also send a report if the police tell you to.
