The Direct Vision Standard (DVS) for heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) assesses and rates how much a driver can see directly from their HGV cab in relation to other road users. The DVS forms part of a proposed Safety Permit for all HGVs over 12 tonnes entering London.
Consultation feedback has shaped the DVS proposal which now includes an HGV Safety Permit. If the proposal is approved, HGVs over 12 tonnes entering or operating in Greater London will require a Safety Permit. The Permit scheme will operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year.
Subject to final consultation, permits for the scheme will be available from October 2019.
