As one of the UK’s leading training and qualification awarding bodies, Lantra is delighted to announce an exciting new working partnership with the Institute of Vehicle Recovery (IVR).

As leaders in our fields, both organisations are committed to raising standards, supporting standardisation and, ultimately providing a safer working environment for those operating in the vehicle recovery sector so, this closer relationship makes perfect sense.

Whos is IVR?

The IVR Group is an internationally recognised organisation that works alongside government agencies, the HSE, Highways England plus many other professional bodies, to focus on reducing roadside injuries and fatalities through training and safety procedures. 

They develop and operate a system of sector specific modular training, designed to improve health and safety for both operatives and the general public.

Lantra is currently endorsing and quality assuring several of the IVRs training modules. In particular, we’re looking to provide administration support across NHSS 17/17B.

We’re confident that our breadth of experience in training quality assurance, coupled with IVRs in-depth knowledge of the vehicle recovery sector will both help strengthen the scheme and drive up industry standards.


Andrew Hudson, Lantra Business Relationship Manager said: 

“We are delighted to be working closely with IVR to support them across their training programme.

"Operating in partnership with like-minded people who are fully committed to the highways sector and the safety of those working in it means we can achieve so much more”.

IVR chairman Chris Hoare FIVR said:

“With extensive experience in the other sector schemes, Lantra seemed the obvious choice of partner to endorse and quality assure the IVR’s VR modules, which focus on health and safety best practice for the roadside rescue and recovery industry. With Lantra’s support, the plan is to further raise the standards of our courses and the Sector Scheme to keep those who work in our industry as safe as possible.”
