FORS confirms price freeze on fees for SMEs


Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) has announced that it will freeze the price on its fees for small operators for the third consecutive year.

FORS announced that it would axe its £235 Gold evidencing fee for smaller operators at its members conference.

The fees will be cut for operators with one to three vehicles and has been effective since January 1, to encourage them to go for FORS Gold.

The Scheme reported that accredited operator benefits have increased to include:

  • Eight new, funded training courses; eight new eLearning modules
  • FORS Driver Licence Checking Service in association with FORS Affinity Partner Licence Bureau
  • FORS Audit Toolkit to help with initial FORS Bronze accreditation
  • FORS Fleet Management System – FOR FMS – developed by software specialist and FORS Affinity Partner FleetCheck

FORS’ director John Hix said: “We plough a lot of investment into evolving the scheme and into developing a wide range of meaningful member benefits.

“We recognise too the ever increasing costs that operators must bear, and our price freeze, we hope, goes some way to easing the pressure

“FORS really is gaining traction with operators up and down the UK. Over two-thirds of our membership is outside of the M25, with a growing number emerging overseas.”
