Davina Smythe

Road Transport Compliance & Accreditation Specialist

Davina's career in transport and logistics started in 1997 when she joined the Freight Transport Association as a tachograph analyst. After a few years providing advice and guidance on driver's hours and tachograph regulation she moved to join the training division as a Training Instructor for road freight and passenger transport.

Her reputation for delivering engaging and approachable training stood her in good stead, with many delegates going on to gain their Transport Manager CPC as a result of Davina's ability to provide clear, supportive tuition.

In 2009 she left her role with FTA and become a freelance consultant, initially delivering operator licence compliance support. In 2010 she added to her notable skills by becoming an approved FORS auditor, which at the time was delivered by FTA.

Davina continues to support companies in maintaining their compliance standards in line with operator licensing, but she also delivers solutions for those seeking to gain a range of industry-specific accreditation schemes.
