The Direct Vision Standard (or DVS) is a road safety measure introduced by the Mayor of London as part of the capital’s Vision Zero plan. The scheme started in March 2021 and requires all heavy goods vehicles weighing 12 tonnes or more to have at least a 1-star DVS rating and for the driver to obtain the appropriate safety permit.
Fleet operators are responsible for determining the DVS rating of their vehicles and for obtaining the relevant permit before they enter the Greater London region. If a vehicle is rated at zero stars for driver visibility, it will not be granted a permit unless the relevant Safe System technology is installed to ensure the safety of other road users and pedestrians in the capital.
The equipment required to comply with DVS guidance tends to fall into two broad categories: audible warning systems and improved visibility, both of which we can install for you. Typical equipment includes:
We work with both vehicle technology providers and fleet managers to install their DVS-compliant safety equipment. This is what you can expect from us:
Whatever Safe System technology you wish to install across your fleet, our local engineers will make sure they are fitted to comply with all current legislation. Any equipment we install is thoroughly tested before we finish the job for your peace of mind.
We offer a whole-life maintenance service for your DVS Safe System equipment. Should any of your technology be damage or detached from the vehicle, we will send a local engineer to resolve the matter. In addition, we can provide regular servicing to keep your technology operating at peak performance.
If vehicles in your fleet are being decommissioned, you can transfer the Safe System technology they have on board to another vehicle. We will remove any equipment for you and install it to your new fleet vehicle. If there isn’t another vehicle ready, we can store it in our secure facility until the time comes.
