Clandestine Entrant Awareness

In this Course we will provide drivers with a guide to Clandestine Entrants, what they are, and what to watch out for. We will also outline the necessary vehicle security checks and procedures drivers must perform to avoid clandestine entrants gaining access to their vehicle. This Course covers the following topics: Introduction to clandestine entrants, practical advice and performing a vehicle security check.
This course is designed to meet the driver training requirements under Section 3.4 of the Civil Penalty Accreditation Scheme. With fines from the UK Border Force up to £6,000 for failing to secure a vehicle, and up to £10,000 per clandestine entrant, hauliers and individual drivers face increased financial risk. This accreditation scheme can help demonstrate compliance with the regulations, and can provide significant discounts in the event of a fine.
