Our DVS Safe System Package:
Complete peace of mind knowing your vehicles' safety is improved, with minimal business disruption or down time.
The Direct Vision Standard (DVS) is being implemented by Transport for London, and measures how much an HGV driver can see directly through their cab windows. This visibility indicates the level of risk for vulnerable road users such as pedestrians or road cyclists in the drivers' blindspots.
Whilst applying is free of charge, the HGV Safety Permit scheme will cover Greater London and be in operation 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
Vehicle downtime due to HGVs having to navigate alternative routes
Penalty charges whilst in the travel zone of Greater London without a valid permit
Business operations being disrupted due to vehicle safety maintenance
Dangerous circumstances where drivers are not able to see directly through their cab windows
Life threatening collisions with cyclists or pedestrians through vehicle blind spots
