FORS has frozen its membership subscription and audit fees for 2018 , marking the third year in succession that members benefit from a price freeze.
The latest price freeze follows last autumn’s announcement that the FORS Gold evidencing fee of £235 was being scrapped for smaller operators. Targeted at operators with one to three vehicles, the change was effective from 1 January and aimed at encouraging small operators to progress to FORS Gold and beyond.
Recent FORS scheme additions have seen eight new eLearning modules, a new Driver Licence Checking Service in association with FORS Affinity Partner Licence Bureau, a new Audit Toolkit to help with initial FORS Bronze accreditation and a new FORS Fleet Management System developed by software specialist and FORS Affinity Partner FleetCheck.
“We plough a lot of investment into evolving the scheme and into developing a wide range of meaningful member benefits,” said FORS director, John Hix. “We recognise too the ever-increasing costs that operators must bear, and our price freeze, we hope, goes some way to easing the pressure.”
