DVS SAFETY PERMIT FOR HGVS

As part of the Mayor of London’s Vision Zero plan to eliminate all deaths and serious injuries on London’s transport network by 2041, TFL have released an enhancement to the current Direct Vision Standard (DVS) ‘Safe System’ with the introduction of the ‘Progressive Safe System’ (PSS) from October 2024.

From 28th October 2024 all Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) over 12T must have a minimum of a three-star DVS safety rating, OR fit the new Progressive Safe System (PSS) to operate in Greater London. Failing to comply may result in a penalty charge of up to £550.

 

 

The application for Direct Vision Standard (DVS) PSS (Phase 2) opened on 24th June 2024. If you submitted your DVS Safety Permit application before then, you applied for DVS Phase 1 and will need to reapply before your permit expires. 

Getting a DVS Safety Permit couldn’t be any easier. Just follow these simple steps, once you have confirmed the star rating and installed a DVS PSS you can then apply for your permit!
