Sponsored: All you need to know about the Direct Vision Standard coming into effect this year
The Direct Vision Standard (DVS) is the first legislation of its kind. From 26 October 2020, ALL goods vehicles over 12 tonnes will require a permit to drive into Greater London, including vehicles from outside the UK.
Enforced by Transport for London (TfL), the legislation is based on a ‘star rating’ indicating how much a driver can see from the cab in relation to other road users.
The vehicle manufacturer will issue a star rating for your vehicle. This rating (0-5) is based on how the vehicle left the production line and will not take into account any aftermarket safety systems that have been fitted.
HGVs that do not meet the minimum requirement of one star need to comply with the Safe System which requires the installation of extra devices for indirect vision (similar to FORS & CLOCS specifications). Complying with the Safe System will not alter the vehicle’s star rating but will permit you to drive into Greater London.
By 2024 DVS minimum star requirements increase to three stars.
Vehicles that do not meet the minimum requirement of one star or those that have not complied with the Safe System will be banned from entering Greater London from 26th October 2020.
