WHAT IS DVS?

What is happening?
Vision Zero aims to eliminate all road deaths and serious injuries by 2041. The aim is to ensure the street environment incorporates safe speeds, behaviours, street design and vehicles to target road danger at its core. To achieve this, a Direct Vision Standard (DVS) and a safety permit for all vehicles over 12 tonnes will need to be issued.

Who will require a permit?
Vehicles over 12 tonnes gross vehicle weight (GVW) will require a heavy goods vehicle (HGV) safety permit to be able to operate within Greater London starting from October 2020. They will be issued from October 2019 and will be enforced from 26 October 2020.
