The IRTE (Institute of Road Transport Engineers) was founded in 1944 and is one of the most respected names in UK transport.
IRTE supports transport engineers throughout their careers and encourages high standards, with an emphasis on safety and best practice.
IRTE members come from a wide variety of transport-related roles including apprentices and technicians in both the light and heavy vehicle and bus and coach sectors, workshop managers, fleet engineers, transport managers, company directors and the Armed Forces.
Recognised as the impartial voice of the industry, IRTE believes safety in operation is vital. Recent initiatives include research into tipper stability and safety, fuel efficiency, wheel loss prevention and tail lift safety.
Recognising the need for those working in the industry to prove their competence, IRTE pioneered the irtec Licensing Scheme for technicians and mechanics. An irtec licence certifies the skills and safety of technicians and mechanics working in road transport.
IRTE publishes monthly magazine Transport Engineer, renowned for its incisive features, news analysis and comment as well as a wide range of best practice guides.
