Our Services

Initial Advice

CSL is available to provide advice to the transport industry 24/7, whether urgent help is required or there is an issue where a speedy resolution can be achieved with the help of instant access to initial advice.


CSL provides a comprehensive service to assist operators and those who work for them in ensuring compliance and to that end, it provides access to training for employers, transport managers and drivers. As a joint venture with Transport Help UK Ltd, we have arranged a series of seminars covering the latest legal responsibilities applicable to goods and bus and coach operators, transport managers and professional drivers. The seminar is accredited for Driver CPC purposes and by Transport for London to the bronze award level of the Freight Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS).
The next seminar will take place on 6 and 7 June 2014 at Latimer House, Chesham. For further details and an application form please contact Carolyn Hammond by phone on 01903 890277 or by email on
