WE ARE HERE TO HELP YOU GET YOUR FLEET DVS COMPLIANT
The Direct Vision Standard (DVS) and safety permit for heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) requires operators of lorries over 12 tonnes gross vehicle weight to apply and obtain a permit to enter or operate in Greater London. Not complying to the new regulations means you may receive a Penalty Charge Notice.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
The Direct Vision Standard measures how much an HGV driver can see directly through their cab windows. This indicates the level of risk to vulnerable road users, such as people walking and cycling, near the vehicle. By adding safety equipment you will achieve your DVS star rating, eliminating the vehicles blind spots

- The new rules apply for HGVs weighing more than 12 tonnes GVW only (not applicable to cars, taxis, vans, buses or coaches)
