Plant-i DVS Compliant Solutions
From the 26th of October 2020 all HGV’s over 12 Tonnes operating in the Greater London Area will require a DVS safety permit.
Star ratings will be measured by Direct View through the windows of the HGV Cab. This is to ensure that deaths and serious injuries on roads within London are eliminated; by lowering the level of risk to vulnerable road users such as Motorcyclists, people walking and cyclists near the vehicle.
By the 26th of October 2020 a 1 Star ranking is the minimum ranking for your HGV to operate within London, and a 5 star Ranking being considered Excellent.
This requirement will rise in 2024 to a minimum of a 3 rate ranking.
Failure to meet these DVS star ratings, you will be required to make your vehicle safer by fitting Safer Solutions. Penalties will be issued if you are found to breach permit terms.
Applying for your Permit is Free of Charge.
With Plant-i DVS Compliant Solutions you will meet these requirements and be granted your permit.
Vehicles from Outside of the UK
DVS Standards also apply to those travelling into Greater London from outside the UK, and also require a Permit.
Applying is the same as what it is for UK residents, and equivalent documentation is accepted.
