The OCRS ( Operator Compliant Risk Score) is a mechanism used by DVSA at the roadside to identify which vehicles should be checked by mobile inspectors.
If the operator details are entered in the Mobile Compliance System it will show the Examiner if the operator is compliant with the Operator Licensing law and legislations, and what category of 'risk' vehicles present.
The OCRS is split in two areas, one monitors the roadworthiness of vehicles and the other monitors traffic enforcement.
The roadworthiness data includes the following:
First/annual test history data
Fleet check data
Roadside encounter data
The traffic enforcement data includes the following:
Drivers hours score, drivers hours prohibitions and prosecutions
Other traffic enforcement score, overloading prohibitions and prosecutions
There are now four different bands for the OCRS
Green - for operators considered low risk
Amber - for operators considered medium risk
Red - for operators considered high risk
Grey - for operators with no score yet in either category
